Over the summer, I usually have the opportunity to spend more time at home, making it easier to experiment with ingredients. Although I love concocting healthy recipes, one of the problems I encounter the most is incorporating vegetables. I constantly feel like I’m missing out on all of the vitamins and antioxidants they have to offer. After tons of reading about this super food, I realized I had to try a recipe with kale!
In an effort to beat the heat this Summer I put together this Kale Smoothie Recipe. Don’t be afraid of its green color, it’s delicious!
This smoothie is a great way to start the day or take a snack break! Here’s what you’ll need:
Kale Smoothie Recipe
2 cups of kale
1/2 cup of spinach
1/2 of 1 green apple diced
1/2 cup frozen unsweetened pineapple
1/2 cup of water
1 tsp ground ginger (optional)
1 tsp honey (optional)
Blend the kale, spinach, green apples, and pineapple in your favorite blender, slowly adding water to help break down all of the ingredients. Add ice and/or honey to your liking and you’re done! On days where I feel like substituting coffee, I will also add a teaspoon of fresh ground ginger to give my kale smoothie a kick!
I hope you enjoy the recipe, I know it has become one of my favorites! Do you have any go-to smoothie recipes?
