KALE AND PINEAP­PLE DAIQUIRI

Gourmet (South Africa) - - HOW TO DRINK -

Kale is one of the most nu­tri­ent­dense foods on the planet.

It’s packed with pow­er­ful an­tiox­i­dants, and vi­ta­mins C and K. It’s quite dif­fi­cult to break down and it doesn’t juice well, so blend­ing is the best way to get the most nu­tri­ents from it. Made with pineap­ple, ap­ple and fresh mint, get­ting your buzz on while drink­ing your greens has never tasted so good.
