Pour me a drink…a tall, frosty green one!

Kale FrostyThere are some days you just need a drink.

Like today…

The day  I had planned to share the most delicious  rosemary parmesan polenta fries with you, but then things happened and I got so busy I forgot to pick my son up from his sleepover {thank goodness said friend’s mom is SUPER cool and understanding}, and I never had a chance to eat a decent meal {bad dietitian!}, or let alone have a drink of water or take a shower because {gulp!} my water got shut off because I forgot to pay my water bill.

Today is a good day for a drink, but because the day’s far from over and I still have loads to do, I settled on a tall green kale frosty over a more potent tequila laced one.

Care to join me?

Kale Frosty {Gluten-Free and Vegan}

  • 1 cup vanilla milk of choice {almond, coconut, or soy }

  • 2 cups ice

Put all ingredients in a blender and blend away until thick and frosty.

Cheers!

Tell me about your day!  Was it a productive one?  A fun one? A stressful one that called for a drink? Have you ever forgotten to pick up your child?  Had your water shut off for forgetting to pay your bill???

  1. You poor thing! That sounds like a rough day. Luckily most UK bills are direct debit affairs so come straight out of the back without us having to worry about it. Otherwise I would be getting cut off of all kinds of things! Another lovely kale drink from you, EA. Now we just need the weather to make it. It’s more of a hot tea/hot chocolate kind of day. And a flippers or boat day as it hasn’t stopped raining…

  2. YOU ARE HILARIOUS!!!!! Cell phone. Damn thing…I’m always forgetting to pay it! Haven’t done the water yet though! I have not forgotten to pick up the kiddo but I did lose him once, does that count? 😉 Have a super groovy rest of the week…you green drink looks DIVINE. I LOVE green smoothies!!!

  3. Oh you poor dear. We’ve all had “those fun days”… when the emotions of it all finally settle down, I hope you can laugh 🙂 As I was always taught: if no one was hurt, then all is well.

    Hope your week is turning around 🙂

    p.s. The green of that drink is divine!

    1. Thanks Patti! This morning got off to a rough start {I had forgotten to back up a blog post I was working on for another site-oops!}, but things are looking much better now 🙂

  4. I was actually planning on getting kale at the store today, and making my first kale smoothie! I typically use spinach, but kale it my favorite. I may have to try this recipe 🙂 Because, it’s one of those days…I need a drink (a green one, that is!)

    1. I definitely hope you try it Gina! I love going “all out” with 2 cups of kale, but, if you’re new to kale smoothies I definitely think 1 cup is the way to go, so you don’t get overwhelmed 🙂 A sprinkle of cinnamon is always good too!

  5. I think I’ve forgotten to do most things (bills often) but haven’t forgotten a child. I’ve been late though. Your kale frosty sounds great, so simple, so pretty. I must say though it’s not what I’d reach for when super stressed. Kale Margarita?

    1. It’s not generally what I look for when super stressed either, but with a lot more of the day to get through yesterday it definitely helped! Let me now if you ever end up “forgetting” a child 🙂
