While I make no claims to be a nutrition expert, I’d like to share a recipe I’ve been enjoying daily for the last two years. Kale serves as the backbone of the recipe and as a result I have seen dramatic changes in my body. Kale is full of antioxidants, calcium, vitamins and supports cardiovascular health (lowers cholesterol), just to name a few of the many reasons why kale is king. It’s also low in calorie, high in fiber with each cup packing only 36 calories while giving you 5 g of fiber. It keeps you full and satisfied longer. So, give this smoothie a try and you, too, can walk down the road to healthier living.
Put liquid in the blender, followed by dry/frozen ingredients. I don't use ice since the greens and berries are frozen, but you may wish to add ice. Blend on high until thoroughly blended and smooth. And then, ENJOY! For me, it’s a welcomed and healthy start to my day. Why don’t you join me?
