Green smoothies are an ideal fat burning food as they are nutrient-rich, loaded with fiber and low in fat.  Kale is unusually high in fiber, so kale smoothies can help weight loss. This helps create the bulk you need to fill you up and to keep you full for a good amount of time. Kale is also an excellent source of nutrients, especially vitamin A and calcium. With a combination of vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients, kale is a dieter’s king of green! Some of the best ingredients to add to your weight loss smoothies along with kale are grapefruit, pumpkin, apples (with skin), blueberries, pomegranates, chia seeds, raspberries, pears (with skin), strawberries, , broccoli, celery, cucumber, carrots, all leafy greens and nut milk. The trick is to add low glycemic index food and avoid food high in saturated fats. Smoothies can include quality hemp, rice protein , powered greens and superfood powders, but while such protein powders help make a great smoothie, it’s important to focus on whole food.
