Curly Kale Crisps

I am always finding new ways I can include kale in my diet to increase my iron intake! And these curly kale crisps are delicious and so simple to make…


Sainsbury’s sliced curly kale

Virgin olive oil

Sea Salt


Wash the kale and pat dry with a kitchen towel. Leave to for 1/2 hour uncovered.

Preheat the oven on gas mark 200C.

Take the kale and make sure it is dry.

Line a baking tray with foil and speak the kale out evenly on the tray.

Drizzle with a olive oil and sea salt and place in the warm oven for approx 20-25 mins

The time will vary on the type of oven you have so I would start checking after 15mins. Once it is cooked take out of the oven and leave to cool down and crisp up before serving!

Kale Smoothie with Blueberries

Kale Smoothie with Blueberries

This is a delicious smoothie rich in iron, antioxidants and vitamin C. It tastes really nice too!


2 cups of kale

1 cup blueberries

1.5 Tablespoons of plain, fat free Greek style yoghurt

200ml of unsweetened coconut milk – I use the Vitacoco brand


I used the Sainsbury’s sliced curly kale which isn’t really tender so I steam it for 10mins in my steamer which is 2 mins longer than the packet instructions.

Then blend all ingredients together in a blender or Nutribullet – which ever you prefer; for this recipe I just use my blender. Also use a dairy alternative yoghurt for a vegan smoothie.

Then pour into a glass and enjoy!

This is great for natural iron and to boost your energy. A great smoothie to start your morning! x
