Kale and Apple Smoothie

kale-and-apple-smoothie-01

This has been a week of kale for our family. Kale in salads, kale in soups, and kale in this smoothie. The reason for this is the kale growing in my garden is massive. Little shop of horrors if you will. No to mention the kale is in fierce competition with the equally as massive zucchini plants.

I don’t eat smoothies as often as I like so I thought it was about time to whiz up a little batch of this green goodness. Make sure when you are preparing the ingredients you slice off the woody center vein of the kale and all of the seed core of the apple. I prefer to keep the skin on the apple but if you prefer you can peel the apple.

I used unsweetened almond milk and a drop of pure vanilla but this would be just as good, if not better, with unsweetened vanilla or even unsweetened chocolate almond milk.

There are 19.7g net carbs, a face melting 59.3g of protein and 12 Weight Watcher points.

About the Author:

Hello and thanks for popping by! My name is Kim and I love to cook low carbs recipes, desserts, salads and soups. I am always on the hunt for new recipes to make over. My husband Paul was diagnosed with slow onset Type 1 diabetes (LADA) over 5 years ago so we were forced to change the way we did things when it came to cooking. We have always been a healthy and active family. I play soccer, we both run 3-4 times per week and walk 5km most week days after dinner. Our kids play soccer and rugby and are no strangers to a healthy lifestyle. Spending time in the kitchen is always time well spent in my humble opinion and I love to share my cooking successes with you here. There may be hiccups along the way but we keep going and I hope our passion for food translates to your kitchen. Feel free to explore and remember to check us out on Face Book, Twitter, Instagram and Flickr.
