Don't let the color fool you. The kale gives the smoothie its bright green color and lots of nutrients, but it definitely tastes like melon. Try it for breakfast.
2 large kale leaves
1/4 galia melon (or cantaloupe or honeydew)
juice of 1 lime
splash of milk (or coconut water)
Lately I've been adding chia seeds to my smoothies for their omega-3s, which can help reduce inflammation, enhance cognitive performance and reduce high cholesterol. Soak 1 tbsp chia seeds in 4 tbsp water until the water is absorbed, then add to your smoothie.
Blend on liquify setting for 45 seconds and enjoy. Green is good!
