Ingredients

  • 1/2 cups raw pepitas
  • 3 cups chopped kale, fairly tightly packed

  • 1/4 cup apple juice
  • 1/2 cup mashed avocado
  • 1 tablespoon peeled and minced ginger

  • 1/4 teaspoon chipotle chile powder, or 1/2 teaspoon chile powder, optional
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil or olive oil, optional
  • 1 tablespoon minced cilantro
  • 1/4 cup minced red bell pepper

Instructions

  • Place the pepitas in a small bowl with ample water to cover. Allow to sit for 15 minutes. Drain and rinse well.
  • Place in a strong blender with all of the remaining ingredients except the cilantro, and red bell pepper, and blend until very creamy.
