Power charge your morning. 

A friend joked recently that if you’re kale obsessed you could call yourself a “kalivore.” Call yourself what you want, but a kale smoothie is the perfect way to start the day. Drink this first thing, and you’re quickly energized. Yes, it’s bright green and you might be a little skeptical about drinking it, but you’ll soon find that it’s a delicious and vitamin packed staple that you don’t want to go a morning without.

Kale and Ginger Green Smoothie

Ingredients:

Directions:

Combine all ingredients in blender or food processor and mix until fully pureed. Note: if you do use a food processor, you will end up with a slightly chunkier smoothie.

This makes enough for about two pint glasses.

Get creative:

Feel free to go crazy with this recipe, it’s hard to mess it up. I like to add in chopped pineapple for a slightly sweeter flavor. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can also add in additional greens like cabbage or lettuce.

    This was amazing! I added the pineapple and extra ginger and now I have a new recipe to add to my regular morning routine. My 8 year old even loved it! Thank you!
