A Green Delicious Smoothie everyone has to try!!!

By our girl, Jane Lim!

Kale is an amazing vegetable recognized for its exceptional nutrient richness and versatility. Kale is one of the healthiest (and lowest calorie) vegetables and the beautiful leaves of the plant provide a deep, earthy flavor.

One cup of kale contains:

  • 36 calories
  • 5 grams of fiber
  • 5% of the daily requirement of calcium and vitamin B6
  • 40% of magnesium, 180% of vitamin A, 200% of vitamin C, and 1,020% of vitamin K
  • Good source of minerals copper, potassium, iron, manganese, and phosphorus
