Kale Stalk Smoothie with Orange and Hazelnuts

Serves 2.

    Share

    Kale stalks add creaminess and body to your morning smoothie, eliminating the need for a dairy base of milk or yogurt. For an extra boost, save and freeze kale stalks from your everyday cooking, and throw a few extras into this or any smoothie recipe for a (free!) nutrition enhancer.

    Tip:

    If you don’t have roasted hazelnuts handy, try walnuts, almonds, sunflower seeds, or a generous scoop of unsweetened nut or seed butter.
