Kale lemonade

This is my new favorite way to get healthy green kale leaves and their antioxidants (vitamins A, C + K) into my system, and also a blast of fiber... green kale lemonade. It's really yummy—honest.

In a blender I put a big handful of kale leaves (stems removed) along with the zest and juice of half of a lemon, half of a green granny smith apple, half of a frozen, peeled kiwi (or some green grapes), a tablespoon of zested ginger root (which I keep in the freezer) and about a half cup or so of water, then I blitz it all up really well. Finally, I also add in a teaspoon or so of chia seeds that are filled with omega-3 fatty acids, which helps raise our HDL (the good cholesterol) and also adds killer fiber. This kale lemonade really does taste like a sweet, lemony lemonade!
