1kg of Frozen Kale £1.19 @ Iceland

145
Found 3rd Jan 2015
Huge bag of kale, haven't seen it before. Average fresh bags are 200g and cost just under a pound. Going to chuck it in the blender with frozen fruit to make smoothies. Hopefully no more half eaten squishy bags in the fridge!

Great price and perfect for the smoothies. Tbh, when you buy the fresh stuff just put that in the freezer too. What I also do is buy a fresh pineapple, cut that into chunks and freeze that as you can use that in your smoothies and it also acts as a bit of an ice-cube

Interesting, I've never tried freezing it before. I think this would still be cheaper though I bought two pineapples to freeze yesterday, so it's good to know that will work thanks

Do you just put kale and pineapple in yours? I'm all for learning new smoothie recipes at the moment

My usual is kale (or baby spinach), pineapple (or mango), apple, banana, blueberries (again, you can buy frozen blueberries which is a lot cheaper than fresh) and then a handful of mixed seeds (flax, sesame, sunflower and pumpkin). But I also just throw in anything that's lying around!!

Sounds nice, thank you I'm going to have to get my hands on some blueberries. I think they're the only think on that list I haven't got yet. I haven't tried seeds in smoothies yet, but should really give that a go. Have tons in the cupboard and been wanting to eat more flax seeds
Mine from the garden freezes very well
great price hot
My tortoise loves this.
Great find, every time I buy it fresh half the bag ends up in the bin as it seems to go off quite fast.
Kale is good for you, heat added

​some other things I put in my smoothies ,I start with some frozen spinach from Iceland ,at this stage you need some juice i lidl multivitamin juice ,then I add a pack of cooked beetroot from home bargains 29p, add some more juice some frozen kale,frozen mixed berries from Iceland then I add a tin of coconut milk from lidl and then add the rest of the ltr carton of juice and we have a glass of this each morning with breakfast .I know this won't suit everyone but its a good way of getting these veg into the kids and teenagers .

I like the sound of beetroot Thanks for the suggestions Do you use the coconut milk for nutrition or for a bit of creaminess? I've been avoiding because it's quite calories heavy and subbing in natural yoghurt instead.

Bunnies would prefer grass I guess I find kale easier to chew
All sounds grim.....perfect smoothie:

1 x Chicken Madras.
1 x Naan.
1 x 660ml Cobra.

Blitz and drink..
I add the coconut milk for numerous reasons , its very good for you , it makes the smoothie creamier , it hides the taste of the beetroot as beetroot has a very earthy taste .its personal preference I know but sometimes it's the only way of getting these veggies into peoples diets .
It is not organic so full of pesticides:(

coconut water, matcha tea, almond butter, spinach, oats and Brazil nuts (both normally soaked in water the night before), banana and something to sweeten (frozen berries normally): breakfast
Chop up bananas and freeze them. Half a banana gives the smoothy bulk and creaminess. I've been freezing kale, think this will work out cheaper. Also bags of summer fruits from Farmfoods are pretty reasonable. Thanks.

Nope not organic. I am not a believer than organic is always better though. Your mileage may vary

Never heard of brazil nut in a smoothie before! That's pretty interesting, keep meaning to try oats too. I am quite new to all this.

I grow the straight variety's which I imagine would be better for freezing
The best greens to grow and freeze are dwarf beans and peas

Got banana in the freezer to try tonight. Could be interesting, I can't eat as a whole fruit, they literally make me retch! X) I hear they are like ice cream blended though, gonna whack in a load of coco powder, try to cover the taste.

I don't think I am seen it cheaper fresh, I think the cheapest I ever saw was 50p for a 200g bag. I wish we had a Farmfoods here.

Organic farms still use pesticides. Full of pesticides is a bit of an exaggeration.

Try 1 frozen banana, half an avocado, skimmed milk, half teaspoon of honey(or vanilla if you want)
trust me, comes out smooth as silk and tastes awesome.

you do need to experiment with the liquid content, as it comes out too smooth and thick sometimes!

Have been noticing that with other fruits, not enough liquid and it doesn't blend at all! I was quite confused about that to begin with
Issue is when you blend fruits etc, you can drink far more than you could if you were to just eat them whole.

Give the documentary 'That sugar film' a watch.

Questions sugar intake over just calories.. Made me think twice anyway.
If it's too thick just add milk (in it's different varieties depending on your allergy) it makes a great shake instead of a smoothie. You could of course add good old fashioned water but if it's the weekend then vodka is my preferred choice.

This is interesting because I was making high quality smoothies in my Vitamix and afterwards feeling really ill. I would include things like kale, spinach, nettle, freshly picked blackberries, kefir or homemade yogurt, oat groats etc and I think I just went overboard. After a while I was feeling sick just thinking about preparing them. I put it down to overdosing on nutrients in one big hit a day.

I can't say it worries me really. I weigh what I put in, and after water, ice and yoghurt are added, I am probably putting in the equivalent of just over and orange or one grapefruit, but as a mix of fruits. So yes, I am consuming more fruit that normal (which is none, I'm a veg gal not a fruit lover), but I highly doubt I am overdosing on anything.
I have a privet hedge in my garden and it's free
