This would have to be one of the best if not THE best smoothie I have ever tasted!
We have recently been enlightened to the great benefits of Kale; including it into many of our fresh vegetable juices and now we are hooked on this banana-kale smoothie for life! It tastes divine, and it’s super healthy.
Kale also known as a superfood which is rich in vitamin A; great for vision, vitamin B (folate), vitamin K essential for normal bone health and the prevention of blood clotting. Kale has more iron than beef per calorie (YaY!! says someone who isn’t hugely fond of eating red meat and lacks iron in her diet). High in fibre and has no fat. So what’s there not to like about Kale?
I’ve also come across a fantastic kale brownie recipe which I’m keen to try in the near future; if it’s a success I’ll definitely post up the recipe. Both Neil and I were not expecting this smoothie to taste so good, but we were speechless as we savoured our new favourite smoothie down.
It’s best to have the smoothie on an empty stomach to ensure you reap all the fabulous nutritional benefits; your body will love you for it! It’s filling and will keep you going all morning!
