By July 28, 2015 No Comments

You all know that this girl loves her kale + is always trying to keep you healthy and hydrated, especially during these hot + humid summer months. So we teamed up with the yummy COCO5 to make a summer-friendly hydrating kale smoothie!

Hydrating + Sweet Kale Smoothie Recipe:

Makes 16 oz, roughly 125 calories per 8 oz serving

  • 6 oz COCO5 Cherry Crush, 1/2 bottle
  • 6 oz COCO5 Cherry Crush ice cubes (simply freeze it in an ice tray!)
  • 1/2 cup organic blueberries, fresh or frozen
  • 1/4 cup kale, de-stemmed and hand-torn
  • 1 scoop plant-based protein powder, unflavored

To Make:

  1. Add all ingredients to blender and blend until smooth.

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.
