5 Kale Smoothie Combinations for you to try

Kale is in season in the Okanagan so head down to your local grocery store and pick up some beautiful fresh produce! When most people think of kale, they picture horrible green drinks that taste of vegetables.  However kale can be made delicious when added with the right ingredients. It is extremely good for you and health-conscious individuals love it because of the low calorie count, zero fat and high levels of fibre.
