Smoothie Ingredients
1 1/2 oz collard greens
1 persian cucumber
2 oz kumquats
1 apple – chopped
1/2 lemon – juiced
1/2 tsp chlorella
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 cup water, 1 cup ice

A powerful immune booster, chlorella is a blue-green algae that’s also full of B-12, which is essential for the health of red blood cells, the central nervous system, and energy production. Collards are one of the only greens with protein, and lemon juice is a great alkalizer. Add in some nice hydration from a cucumber, fiber from an apple and kumquats, and a super healthy dose of Omega-3s from the chia seeds, and you’ve got a light, refreshing smoothie that is sure to keep you full for hours. Pro Tip: Soaking chia seeds in a small amount of water a few hours beforehand (or overnight) allows them to grow into their more “gelatinous” state. It’s a bit easier for your digestion, and will give the smoothie a nice texture!
