There is no better way to get all your daily nutrients in to your body than by a smoothie. I’m a great fan of smoothies, granted cleaning can be a pain at times, so leave plenty of hot water for your smoothie maker to soak afterwards! In today’s recipe, we are using mainly ginger and kale. Kale contains compounds called glucosinolates that have been shown to have anticancer properties. Adding fresh ginger and a kiwi—which provides more than a day’s worth of vitamin C—helps soften the natural bitterness of the leafy green.

Ingredients
1 cup unsweetened coconut water
½ cup low-fat plain yogurt
1 kiwi fruit, peeled
1 large kale leaf, center rib removed
1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
1 teaspoon honey
Pinch of salt
½ cup ice cubes

Instructions
In a blender, combine the coconut water, yogurt, kiwi, kale, ginger, honey, salt, and ice. Blend until smooth. Serves 1.
