Apple-Kale Green Smoothie Recipe

Smoothies are a great way to pack nutrients into one delicious drink, but they’re also usually full of fruit that can add a lot of sugar into your daily diet. This green smoothie recipe uses only one small Granny Smith, which contains less sugar than other varieties. Detoxifying cucumber, fibrous kale and a plant-based protein powder round it out into a fully nutritious and refreshing drink that can stand in for any meal.
