Kickin' Kale Smoothie


Here's a recipe for a deliciously mutant green smoothie:

    2 to 3 leaves kale
    3/4 cup pineapple juice
    4 to 5 strawberries, grapes, or 1 small orange
    1 banana
    2 to 3 pieces of pineapple
    1 tablespoon chia seeds, soaked overnight

I came up with this on my juice feast that I started specifically to get rid of poison ivy. The chis seeds are great for your skin and kale is a powerhouse of vitamins and minerals, also good for healing.

1) First, blend the pineapple that you are using for your juice, or juice if that's what you are using. Then add the kale by itself to the pineapple juice and blend until smooth. Blending the kale first ensures that you don't get a big chunk while you're sipping later!

2) Add the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth. Enjoy!


  1. you seriously lost 22 pounds?! wow...HOW?! I am looking to lose around 20 lbs and want your secret! I don't really drink beer very often (if ever) and I've cut back on drinking generally. Also, now I'm training for the half in March so that should help...any other tips?!

    CONGRATS on that weight loss though!
