I know what you’re thinking: you’re not quite done sipping on hot chocolate yet. Don’t worry, we do our fair share of sugar and fats damage during the holidays. When we are on staycation for a full 10 days though, we try to get  some more exercise in and slip in some detox foods like this five ingredient kale smoothie. I’m not a smoothie connoisseur, so don’t know a ton of green smoothies to compare this to, but what appeals to me about this one is that it only has five basic ingredients and it doesn’t taste like a ton of grass :-)

Here’s how you whip one up:


About 3 kale leaves, torn up
1/2 cup pineapple chunks
1 cup coconut milk (any kind)
1 tbsp honey
1 tsp cinnamon powder


Simply add all ingredients to a blender and liquify away! Makes about 2 tall glasses. Enjoy cold.
