What are the benefits of blending and enjoying a green fruit-and-veggie smoothie? First, you'll get yourself a tasty breakfast or afternoon treat. Second, look at that great color! The benefits don't stop there. Not only is this smoothie easy to make (I used canned pineapple, but you could use fresh or frozen), but it is delicious too. Don't fear the kale. This smoothie doesn't taste "grassy" or have a heavy veggie flavor.
The fiber that's loaded in a smoothie like this will help keep you full longer. That means less snacking or even overeating. I don't know about you, but with the summer season approaching, that's just the kind of benefit I need in my life.
