The Ultimate Collagen Kale Smoothie Recipes

Oh Kale! You keep appearing everywhere I look when it comes to diet and nutrition. You’re allegedly the “king” of healthy greens. I know I must include you in my diet plan, but to be honest you don’t taste that great. How do I hide you, but keep one of the most nutrient dense foods on the planet involved in my weekly food plan? (All joking aside – Kale is LOADED with vitamins and minerals that are highly beneficial to your health so get it involved immediately).

The plan is to take the superfood, add a super supplement, then throw in some other ingredients for a little extra health boost and taste. You know the superfood; the super supplement is Zammex’ Hydrolyzed Collagen Peptides. When you combine the two you get a comprehensive dosage to enhance your health and wellness. The benefits of supplementing Collagen are well-documented in our Guide to Collagen, but in short, you’re getting skin, hair and nail support, promoting joint and tendon health, building lean muscle and fortifying your digestive system. As stated, combining Kale and Collagen is a full-body experience😊

Now that we’ve established that, let’s make the smoothie taste good and be relatively simple and cost effective. Check it out -

The “Diet” Collagen Kale Smoothie

½ cup of water (I’d still go with the unsweetened vanilla almond milk – it’s only 30 calories a serving and it does add some nutrition)

2 cups of chopped kale
½ banana (freeze the other half for tomorrow but remember to peel first!)
1 tablespoon of chia seeds
½ cup of diced strawberries
1 cup of Zammex collagen
