Super Green Kale Smoothie


Kale one of the most nutritious and hearty vegetables you can eat.  This dense green leafy vegetable is high in fiber and low in calories.  It contains huge levels of iron, vitamin K, vitamin A, vitamin C.  Per calorie, kale has more calcium than milk, which aids in preventing bone loss.  It is a great anti-inflammatory food and a powerful antioxidant.

Along with all these benefits, kale is a great food filled with sulfur which is wonderful for detoxifying your body and keeping the liver healthy.  Hey, let's give a big round of applause for this lush green veggie!  


  • 4-7 kale leaves
  • 1 cup of frozen organic blueberries
  • Filtered water (amount based how you like the consistency of your smoothie)1/2 cup organic apple juice
  • Juice of half a lemon


In a blender, combine kale leaves, water, apple and lemon juice.  Blend on a slow speed at first and gradually increase speed, adding in the blueberries last to prevent the kale from frothing.

If kale stems are thick and dense, you may want to remove some to keep your smoothie smooth.  As mentioned above, start blender on a slower speed and move up.
