SLURP SLURP – Green and Minty

Say hello to our other green friend – the rusty old pal ‘kale’. I think you are now ready to add the nutritional powerhouse to your smoothies! Apart from providing us with the essential vitamins and fibers, our pal here helps fight and alleviate arthritis (that’s for you Ma!), and also keeps our body strong and healthy inside out with beautiful skin, hair and nails (I know!!). Usually I would peel my fruits for smoothies, however I would recommend against it for pears because their skin contributes to decreased risk of type 2 diabetes. I know what you are thinking!! Lots of health benefits, but does it taste equally good too! ABSOLUTELY!!!! So, shake it up and Sluuuurp!!
