Its good to switch up your smoothie recipes...
One - giving your body different nutrients and vitamins is healthy and
Two -it keeps your smoothies from getting boring!
This Kale Apple Smoothie is a great choice for the fall. The cinnamon is a warming, grounding ingredient that is amazingly high in antioxidants. It is also very healthy for lung function - which is important in the cool, breezy months.
The nutrients in kale also work to keep your lungs and respiratory system healthy and of course give your body an extra boost of greens - something we all need!
The hemp seeds and almond butter provide clean protein, not to mention magnesium for your muscles and vitamin E for your skin. The apple contains fibre to keep you full, your cholesterol low and your heart healthy.
Sounds like the perfect, healthy way to start a gorgeous fall day...
You can substitute the kale for whatever greens you like or have on hand - spinach or swiss chard will also work.
I like my smoothies very cold and more like a juice so I tend to add a few extra ice cubes.
Any type of apple will work - I like Honey Crisp or Gala. Keep the skin on - there are a ton of nutrients in it!
Cinnamon is an amazing antioxidant - choose Ceylon Cinnamon when you are buying it - it true cinnamon and has the most health benefits.
Blend all ingredients together in a high speed blender. For a more "juice" type of smoothie add more ice cubes.
