This pretty green smoothie is packed with fiber, vitamin C and lutein (which may be good for eyesight). Keep frozen grapes in your freezer so you can whirl this up in a pinch for breakfast or for a healthy refresher any time of day.
1 cup chopped fresh pineapple, plus a pineapple wedge for garnish
1 cup packed chopped kale (stems removed)
1 cup frozen green grapes
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon finely grated fresh ginger
1 teaspoon ground flaxseed
Put the pineapple, kale, frozen grapes, lemon juice, ginger and flaxseed into a blender. Blend on high until very smooth, turning off the blender and pushing down on the ingredients with a spatula or wooden spoon as needed to help the blending process. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons of water if needed to adjust consistency. Pour into a glass and garnish with a pineapple wedge.
