Fall Greens Smoothie
Active Time: 10 minutes
Makes 2 servings
There is increasing evidence that lightly cooking kale is the healthiest way to consume it. Kale is rich in many vitamins and minerals, but also contains naturally occurring oxalic acid, which inhibits proper digestion and absorption. If raw kale does not agree with you, you can place the kale leaves in a strainer and pour just boiled water over the top. Rinse with cold water and squeeze out the excess water before adding to your smoothie.
- 2 cups cashew milk
- 2 cups packed lacinato kale leaves, or baby kale*

- 1 cup seedless purple grapes, frozen
