Kale is one of the most amazing superfoods. It’s packed full of vitamins K and A, minerals copper and manganese, and other nutrients. Combine it with some frozen fruit and one scoop of Multi Collagen Protein Unflavoured or Vanilla, and then you also get collagen from four sources (beef, chicken, fish and eggshell membrane) .
Multi Collagen Protein Unflavoured or Vanilla helps to maintain healthy hair, skin and nails, helps to reduce joint pain associated with osteoarthritis, and features collagen types I, II, III, V and X..
While some folks get overwhelmed by the kale flavor in typical green smoothies, this one complements the kale with some fruit and coconut milk. Try this Collagen Kale Smoothie recipe and see how delicious it is.
How to Make a Kale and Collagen Smoothie
This is not complicated. Simply add all ingredients to a high-speed blender and blend until smooth.
The recipe calls for baby kale leaves, as they have more flavor and blend more easily than older, heartier kale. And you definitely want to avoid the big, thick stalks of fully grown kale.
Frankly, nearly any fruit will work well in this recipe, but pineapple, strawberries and peaches are three of my favourites. Why frozen? Well, mostly because frozen fruit makes the consistency nearly perfect and easy to consume with a straw.
If the smoothie isn't liquidy enough for your taste, add a little more water and re-blend.
