I’ve always been a big fan of coconut. Coconut oil, coconut-scented lotions and candles, coconut candy… You name it, I love it. I recently came across a recipe for a coconut and kale smoothie and, since I’m very much into juicing and getting my fruits and veggies via tasty liquified blends, I knew I had to try it! And where did this recipe come from, you ask?? I traced it back to Naturewell, a “wellness bar” you could only find in Los Angeles, ha. Take a look through their menu and head over to Silverlake to try them out!
If you don’t normally consume kale, I urge you to start!! It’s a dark leafy green vegetable, so already we know it’s going to be super healthy. And kale packs a ton of Vitamin K, which helps keep your defenses up against cancer, as well as a ton of Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and fiber.
So enjoy this healthy green smoothie for breakfast or just as a snack throughout the summer. To your health!
