Tasty Kale Smoothies

Kale can be one of those veggies that has a strong flavour and most people dislike the taste. When you incorporate kale into a smoothie the flavour is masked by all the sweet fruit you add. However, we think the best kale smoothies use flavours that all work together. Below we have a number of recipes to get you started on your kale journey!

  • 100ml unsweetened almond milk
  • 50ml pineapple juice (try juicing your own pineapple as the taste will be so much better)

combine all ingredients and blend on high until smooth.

Dessert Smoothie
