Tropical Green Smoothie

I drink so many smoothies, this one is very easy to create as well as delicious and so nutritious too!

THE TWIST

Kale is an incredible  nutritional powerhouse and is becoming more and more commonly used among cooks. It is low in calories, high in fiber and is a complete protein. Kale has more iron than beef and is packed with cancer fighting phyto-chemicals and antioxidants. The amazing combination of the tropical fruits and greens makes this a great smoothie to alleviate minor aches and muscle pains, clear headaches, detoxify, build the immune system, nourish the body with micronutrients, promote beautiful hair and skin and much more. At the same time it is working to support your better health it also tastes delicious!
