Fresh is always best, but in our house kale is one of those things that lives rent-free in the fridge and expires before it is used; I find it time consuming to wash and cut, but with this alternative I only have to do it once. These cubes make it really easy to add nutrient rich kale to shakes, sauces, smoothie drops, soups – you name it!

My son will not voluntarily eat greens, but he does love his shakes and pasta sauce, and blindly consumes this super-powered cruciferous daily.


Add 1-2 cups of water to the blender with a bundle of kale, blend well (sometimes this takes some shaking and shifting), pour the puree into ice-cube trays and freeze. Once frozen, remove the cubes from the trays and store them in a sealable container to avoid freezer burn.

You can make cubes with just about any pureed vegetable. My next batch will be pumpkin cubes.

Happy cubing!
