Starting the new season with a smoothie detox is always a great idea! I’ve tried a lot of funny smoothie recipes in my life, most of them I haven’t posted on the blog because they belonged to the green monster category (and could be barely swallowed). Anyhow, this kale + pineapple combo WAS a success: both super tasty and refreshing!
Kale is so much more than this green piece of frilly lettuce that gets even greener once you cook it. Raw or cooked, I love this veggie so so much because the taste is quite unique. And when you know how packed with all the good vitamins and minerals (manganese, calcium, copper, magnesium, potassium) it is, you love it even more.
When fall and winter arrive, I am so so bad at eating fruits. I don’t know what it is but I don’t really fall for apples, pears and oranges. Devouring an entire basket of fresh cherries, that’s quite an easy game for me! But when it comes to peeling an orange and putting it in my mouth, I just can’t. I’ve created this smoothie to help me get more vitamins during the winter months because even though I’m picky, my body really needs it!
