Kale Avocado Banana Smoothie

Avocado Banana Kale Smoothie

 I’ve always been turned off by the idea of green smoothies. I don’t know why, because I love my greens! Spinach? Yum! Kale? One of my favourite foods! But the idea of drinking them just sounded wrong to me! But I am officially a convert, green smoothies are awesome!

Kale and Black Bean Salad with Avocado Lime Dressing

This Kale and Black Bean Salad with Avocado Lime Dressing is the first of my non-baking posts. I’m going to be doing these at least once a month to encourage myself to cook more and also share some of the yummy non-baked things I make! I’d like to apologise in advance for the terrible photos these posts will have, while I have been improving my baking photography it seems I have a lot further to go with general food photography!

This salad is a favourite for me and the best friend, it’s simple to make, super tasty and healthy too! What’s not to love. You can mix it up with your favourite veggies to customise it your personal tastes.

The dressing is nice and creamy, which is great for raw kale as it helps break it down – raw kale is a favourite of mine but it can be pretty tough, I normally toss it in lime juice which makes it extra tasty and helps break it down. This dressing has the benefits of the lime juice and the thickness to make the kale more palatable as a salad.
