Kiwi and Kale Smoothie – Healthy Way to Curb a Sweet Tooth
Combining fruits and vegetables in a smoothie is more popular than ever. This combination can provide the body with essential nutrients it requires maintaining a workout and strength through the recovery phase afterward.
Only Kale offers lots of nutrients including Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and Vitamin K, calcium, and iron. While the kale provides the most of the nutrients to the smoothie, the kiwi enriches the taste and along with the milk add the base and vital protein to the drink.
The end result is a protein filled smoothie that delivers enough power for the body to sustain any workout load. The best thing about this smoothie recipe is that is can be taken before or after a physical exercise to supercharge your routine. Its huge protein load causes it to be perfect for recovery after a workout, but the nutrients from the kiwi and kale turn it to a fantastic pre-workout smoothie as well.
