    Description

    One of the easiest ways to pop kale into your diet is a smoothie. Adding extra-sweet fruits, such as pineapple and banana, helps tames its bitter, peppery flavor, making this super-tasty—and nutritious! Kale is rich in vitamins and contains a healthy dose of fiber, iron and calcium.

    Dietitian Tip: For an extra-cold smoothie, use frozen fruit. No chilling needed!
