Refreshing Kale Pineapple Smoothie

deliciously refreshing smoothie, with sweet and tangy flavors is here!

Pineapple and kale are a fabulous combo here and cucumber adds a great refreshing taste and ‘softens’ the flavors a bit. The fruit and veg in this smoothie will give you a couple of portions of your 5 a day and a great start to the day!

As you know I love my superfoods and sneaking in extra nutrition into smoothies, so hemp seeds and brazil nuts are a great addition here:

  • protein for energy and muscles

  • Omega 3 for healthy brain and glowing skin

  • healthy fats

  • antioxidants to fight free radicals

  • selenium for cognitive functions, thyroid support and immunity.

Ingredients

1.5 cups fresh kale

1/2 cup frozen pineapple

1/2 medium cucumber, roughly chopped

large squeeze of fresh lemon juice

2 heaped tbsp hemp seeds

2 brazil nuts

1/2 cup cold water

1/4-1/2 cup almond milk (other plant based milk)

Optional: add 1 scoop of Amazing Grass, for extra superpowers.

Method

Simply add all ingredients in a blender and mix until smooth. You’re aiming for a lovely, vibrant green color! Adjust the liquid amount to your liking and add more/less lemon juice for more/ less zesty taste. Enjoy the goodness!
