I bought some fresh bunches of curly kale and regular parsley. I chopped it and added a few seedless green grapes, olive oil, and some lemon juice with a dash of salt.
It was a chewing marathon and something got stuck in my throat but finally digested. I never want to go through that again.
A juicer or food processor would be best but all I have right now is a blender. Would I pulverize it in the blender? What do I add (olive oil perhaps) to make a palpatable.
thanks for suggestions.
What were you trying to make? A raw pesto of some sort? Or juice?
Kale is super fibrous if you didn't get rid of the stalks and pulled the leaves away from
all the connective stringy stuff that is difficult to chew..........You might
have stripped off the tough fibrous stems in the middle of each leaf and just used the leaves....The curly kale would have been easier to work with. You could do this in a blender
but olive oil is going to turn it into a pesto...and then you might want some garlic and
or nuts to complete the process...but know that when you're done, this goes on top of
something...pasta...veggies, crackers, and it becomes more like a dip than a beverage.
If you were trying to make juice in a blender, you'd want to use the cleaned up leaves (stems
and stringy stuff removed) and add enough water to process it so you've got something that
resembles juice.....Then strain it and drink the liquid..You'd get the benefits of nutrients but you wouldn't get any thick fiber to get stuck in your throat..You could probably throw the
leftover fiber into a soup...although I'm not sure about those grapes...
I'm not sure if you wanted a beverage or a pesto.
