You start by juicing 1 apple, 2 carrots, 1/2 a cucumber and some kale (which by the way my juicer did not like at all, it was nearly impossible to juice the kale and I almost broke my beloved juicer in the process)
Next you put the juices in a blender and add some non-fat plain yogurt and ice. Blend away and then drink it up.
Then if you are anything like me immediately spit it out and curse Dr. Oz’s name! BLEH! It was sooo disgusting and so not worth all the trouble. I will just eat my fruits and veggies, thank you very much! I started to pour it all down the sink but the SC wanted to try it and he didn’t think it was all that bad. He is crazy.
Since I was feeling adventurous I decided to try to make Kale chips which I had seen featured on another food blog. I honestly didn’t expect these to be good and they really surprised me.
Drizzle the kale with olive oil, parmasean cheese and salt and bake at 350 for about 15-20 minutes. I highly recommend this!
I was on an adventurous kick so next I decided to try to make plantain chips. Have you ever had these? They sell them in some international and specialty shops and they are so tasty but probably mostly because they fry them similar to how you make potato chips. A plantain is similar to a banana but slightly bigger and I don’t think it tastes all that good raw.
To make the plantain chips I tried to cut thin slices, sprayed with Pam and sprinkled a little salt on top. Baked at 350 for about 20-25 minutes (flipped them halfway). Allow to cool a bit so they get a little more crunchy.
