Green smoothies are an excellent way to get dark leafy greens into your diet, or sneak them into your kid’s meals. Leafy greens like kale, spinach and collard greens are packed with magnesium, vitamin K, and even calcium. They are also a great addition to help increase your intake of alkaline foods. This will help to offset an acidic diet, high in sugar, processed foods, caffeine and even stress.
Try this recipe for a green smoothie that brings me back to the island of Kauai every time I drink it. With the flavor of coconut and pineapple, you can barely taste the green, even though you still get the healthy benefits!
