This one of our healthy smoothies has a lovely rich taste. The kale gives it green goodness, and the apples provides natural sweetness. Add a dollop of almond butter for some extra creaminess and some lemon for a little tang.

Kale is rich in antioxidants which fight free radicals in the body. It’s also high in fiber, protein, thiamin, riboflavin, folic acid, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, calcium, potassium, copper and manganese, vitamins A, C, K and B6. Phew try saying that all in one breath! It’s quite literally packed with nutrients. As kale can be a bit harder for babies to digest we recommend it for 12 months and over. We’ve added some refreshing apples, almond butter and maple syrup to make these healthy smoothies creamy and delicious.
