- 1/4 cup kale, de-stemmed and hand-torn
- 1 scoop plant-based protein powder, unflavored

We like to make it green, so why Kale?
Kale is one of the most nutrient-rich foods you can pack into your diet. It contains health-promoting vitamins and minerals like as vitamin A, vitamin K, vitamin C, vitamin B6, Manganese, Calcium, Copper, Potassium and Magnesium. It is high in antioxidants, fiber, but keeps a low calorie profile. Don’t love kale? Just switch the drink up by using spinach (will make it sweeter) or Swiss chard!
A bit about COCO5:
COCO5 is an all-natural, young coconut based hydration drink containing all 5 essential electrolytes necessary for proper hydration and balance.
