COCONUT + KALE = YES!

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!

    Hi Teni! I made this and it tasted great but there were kale bits all over. The kale doesn’t really blend into the mixture well. Did you strain yours? Also, can you pleeeease do a blog post or video about what you eat/drink for every meal over a typical week? Your skin is gorgeous from the inside out and I’d love a few tips on nutrition for beauty as my skin is really dry, dull and has acne scars. Thanks so much love! 🙂

    • Yes I’m working on a diet/fitness post coming soon! As for the kale mix, I use the NutriBullet blender which gets the mixture as creamy as possible, but yes there were still tiny pieces of kale in it. I didn’t strain it, just drank it the way it was so I wouldn’t miss any nutrients! 🙂
