Green Smoothie Recipes With Kale
Kale is one of the most underused leafy green vegetables when it comes to green smoothie recipes; however, it offers a whole host of nutritional benefits. For example, kale is quite rich in calcium, in a form that is easier for your body to digest than the calcium found in milk. Kale leaves can taste somewhat bitter, but their taste is easily disguised with the natural sweetness of fruit in the smoothie.
