Green smoothie

This smoothie is healthy, refreshing and delicious. The ingredients I’ve used provide you with loads of health benefits:

  • Kiwi is packed full of vitamins C and E, which can act as antioxidants to help protect against cancer, boost immunity and prevent skin degradation. Also, kiwi is a great source of folic acid (vitamin B6).
  • Pear is a good source of copper, which helps with collagen formation, absorbing iron and the production of energy.
  • Kale is such a healthy food. It’s full of vitamins K, A, C and B6. It’s also a good source of calcium, iron and antioxidants. What’s more, kale is a great food for detoxifying your body.
  • Cucumber also nourishes you with many vitamins and minerals, such as vitamins A, B and C, and magnesium, potassium and silicon. In addition, cucumber contains silica, which makes your hair and nails stronger and shinier.
