kale green juice

Not all homemade juices have pretty colors. In fact, when you mix orange and green ingredients, the results can be quite ugly.

But as they say — never judge a book by its cover. In fact, what this juice recipe with kale may lack in looks makes up for it in health benefits.

The taste might be a bit challenging at first, but it’s not too hard to get used to. The second sip will taste better, and you’ll acquire a taste for it in no time. Especially knowing it comes packed with nutrients.

I used to add more carrots at first, as it makes it a bit sweeter. If you’re still getting used to healthy green juices, you can do the same. It will look worse, but it will taste better.

Besides kale, this recipe combines other superfoods like the renowned ginger, and turmeric.
