Home Cooking, for the sake of your health!

Super Power SmoothieKale is known as the healthiest green leafy vegetable, but most kale smoothies have a distinct flavor that won’t necessarily please every palate. If you are looking for a way to get this wonderful and nutritious green into your daily diet, try this vitamin rich smoothie. The addition of pineapple (which is packed with various antioxidants) and an apple neutralizes the flavor of kale and makes this smoothie that much more nutritious.   The addition of the powerful flaxseeds adds even more healthy benefits.  Flaxseeds are packed with Omega-3 essential fatty acids, fiber and Lignans.  Some call it one of the most powerful plant foods on the planet. Drink this smoothie as often as you can for a better overall health!

 
Ingredients
  • 3-4 Kale leaves ends removed
  • ¾ cup Pineapple chunks
  • 1 small/medium apple (I prefer red delicious) peeled, cored and sliced
  • 1 tbs flaxseeds
  • ½ cup Water
  • a few cubes of ice (optional)
 
Instructions
  1. Blend everything in a high speed blender until smooth
