I made this kale smoothie recipe yesterday – and it was refreshing.

This kale smoothie recipe gets its sweetness from cantaloupe and a little tang from lemon. Start your morning with this delicious and healthy beverage.

Like most of us, I am trying to get more greens into my diet every day.

Kale, as we know, is a superfood – or a salad bar garnish, depending on how you look at it.

But I digress.

For this kale smoothie I use my Ninja IQ blender on the Extract setting.

Kale Smoothie Ingredients

All you need is

  • about 1 cup of chopped kale
  • 1/2 cup of cubed cantaloupe
  • the juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • 1 1/2 cups of coconut water

Instructions

Add the cantaloupe to the blender jar.

Top with chopped kale.

Drizzle with lemon juice.

Pour coconut water over top.

Use the extract setting on your Ninja blender or blend until smooth on a different model.

That's it.

Drink your greens!

Health Benefits of Kale

Why should you add kale to your diet?

Well, for starters kale is:

  • high in fiber and low in fat
  • it has lots of iron, vitamin A, vitamin K, and Calcium
  • and it has powerful antioxidants

On top of that, the cantaloupe adds more vitamin A, vitamin K, and a host of B vitamins.

Seriously, I know that donuts taste better – but having some daily greens is kind of a cheap insurance policy.
