Apple Kale Smoothie

We have another healthy recipe for you this month! This smoothie is refreshing and great for the summer.

The green apples contain pectin, a fiber source that helps healthy bacteria grow in your gut. Pectin can also help you break down foods more efficiently, and the high fiber in the green apple can help the rest of your digestive system, too!

Kale is one of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet! It’s loaded with powerful antioxidants, helps fight heart disease and cancer, and can reduce inflammation. It’s also loaded with vitamins, especially Vitamin K and Vitamin A. Raw kale has even been shown to help lower cholesterol!

  • 1 Cup of Curly Kale* Washed with Stems Removed
