Smoothie of the Week: Hail to the Kale


Are you still scared of kale? This smoothie will finally make you a convert. With avocado for creaminess and pear for sweetness, the kale’s more bitter flavor completely dissapears. But the benefits are still there; minerals, vitamin A, C and K, 45 different antioxidants to fight off free radicals, detoxing properties and fiber for digestive aid.

‘Nough Said!

Hail to the Kale 

½ pear
¼ avocado
½ cucumber
½ lemon
handful of cilantro
1 cup kale (packed)
½ inch ginger
½ cup coconut water
1 scoop protein powder (hemp, pumpkin or pea works great!)
pure water –  as much as you need to reach your desired consistency 

Blend it all up, sip slow and chew!
