Grapefruit Green Smoothie

Grapefruit and kale are nutritional powerhouses that can help prevent disease, lower bad cholesterol, cleanse the body, and encourage weight loss. This green smoothie recipe balances the tartness of grapefruit and the somewhat bitterness of kale with two key ingredients: Bananas and pineapple. Citrus helps break down the kale, making it easier to digest. Blending it helps, too. The addition of frozen banana gives it a creamy sweet element that makes it deliciously easy to drink.

Natural sugars in fruit are balanced with nature’s perfect amount of fiber along with water both from the plants themselves as well as the water you add. Together, these ingredients can leave you feeling hydrated, cleansed, and energized.

If you’re new to green smoothies, experiment with the quantities of greens at first, starting with less then building up over time. You can also add a few pitted dates for extra sweetness!

Yours in delicious heath,
