Step 7 says to add kale and barely, after reading the ingredients a few more times I did not see barely, did you mean raisins? I am going to add the raisins here and see how that works.

This hit the spot! I was looking for something full of fiber and valuable nutrients and that also tasted good, and this is the ticket!
