Piña Colada Kale Smoothie

If you like piña coladas (and getting caught in the rain) you’ll love this delicious, tropical smoothie. It’s a holiday in a glass – it combines kale with juicy, fresh pineapple and decadent coconut cream, which makes for a refreshing smoothie that just screams summer. You’ll barely even notice the kale! Incorporating more greens into your diet has never been so easy (and yummy)!
