Everyone’s first reaction when I tell them about this smoothie: “Whaaaaat?“. I KNOW! This tropical Turmeric Pineapple & Kiwi Kale Smoothie is loaded with flavor AND nutrition!
Summer has arrived full force here in Texas. It seems to have come out of nowhere! Ok so maybe it just caught me by surprise…it IS June, after all. However, this hot weather has me craving a pool side or beach bum life almost every day! Summer Dream: me spending every day by the beautiful blue pool, catching rays with this Turmeric Pineapple & Kiwi Kale Smoothie in hand. Summer Reality: me spending every day in my small kitchen, covered in flour, hair in a bun, no makeup, with this Turmeric Pineapple & Kiwi Kale Smoothie in hand. Meh, I’ll take it. 😉 ‘Tis the blogger life!
If, like me, spending every day at the pool is only but a dream for this summer, let this tropical smoothie take you there!
This smoothie is great in the morning for breakfast, but I actually really love it as an afternoon pick-me-up. The first time I had it, I was surprised at the amount of energy it gave me! Maybe it’s how amazingly good for you turmeric truly is? If you’re curious about what those health benefits are, head over to the Vegan Turmeric Quinoa Power Bowls recipe to read about it! If you’ve never had turmeric, this is my favorite kind! I use it ALL of the time!
Also, I have a major confession to make: this was my first EVER kale smoothie! I know. Even I’m shocked. I have to admit I was super nervous about the kale flavor taking over, but as it turned out the KIWI took ever (which was a pleasant surprise)! So you’re consuming really good-for-ya stuff and can’t even tell!
