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.
Hi Heather, you add the raisins in step five and the Kale in step 7, and you are to barely stir. 🙂
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!
Would butternut squash work if I can’t find sugar pumpkins? (I live in Hawaii, we are limited) 😉
