With hotter days finally here, I’m really into making lighter meals.

I usually go for the same old same old classic green smoothie (baby spinach, almond milk, banana) but this morning @lukbeautifood inspired me to mix things up a little.

Yes I know, the words “kale juice recipe” can sound scary. I’ll admit that my first few attempts at making fresh juice with veggies we’re shall we say… interesting.
