Get a pep in your step with this healthy, fruit and vegetable morning smoothie. After purchasing a VitaMix (a powerful blender), I’ve been creating my own combinations of fresh ingredients to make a great smoothie that’s flavorful and nutritious.

The key to this smoothie is raw kale, because it has so much vitamin A, C and K. It also is considered one of those vegetables that feeds the brain and is anti-flammatory, helping heal a sore and stiff body. Kale is a popular trend for those on the health kick, but Dr. Drew Ramsey writes you should make it part of your staple diet.

This is one of the quickest recipes you can make in the morning and even drink it on the way to work. Next week I’ll show you another recipe with kale, so that the bunch you buy at the market doesn’t go to waste.
