Packed with incredible nutrients, kale smoothies are extremely popular these days and are known as “super-foods.”
I felt fatigue the other day, so my friend Nicole (who is a Doctor) recommended I make one of her favorite smoothies to help boost my immune system and energy, the green smoothie.
Her kale-protein smoothie is so simple and light, making it ideal for me to drink it for breakfast; so filling it held me over until lunch time.
Oh, and don’t let the green color dissuade you, the taste is truly wonderful! The kale is hidden in this smoothie and best of all, its packed with enough protein and nutrients including vitamins A, C and K to keep you going all morning.
I keep my bananas and strawberries in the freezer, so making this smoothie was a snap! And, I found already chopped fresh kale in a package, (which are sold in most supermarkets) making it also easy to make this smoothie.
Thanks to Nicole, I’ve become obsessed over these kale-protein smoothies. I now make them often. My friend Nicole makes various healthy smoothies for her kids every morning before sending them off to school. They’re even perfect for my high school and college kids too! I’m so glad I took her advise.
