This Cucumber-Grape Punch superfood green smoothie with kale is packed with some amazing nutrients. The mighty green kale is an excellent source of manganese, which helps build bones, and supports connective tissues in the body.
2 cups kale, fresh
1 cup almond milk, unsweetened
2 cups grapes
1 cucumber, peeled
1/2 cup pineapple
— Serves 2 —
Blend kale and almond milk until smooth. Next add the remaining fruits and blend again.
* Use at least one frozen fruit to make the green smoothie cold.
TIP: Sprinkle 1 tablespoon chia seeds on top to add fiber, which supports a healthy digestive system as well as the brain’s development thanks to the essential fatty acids.
