Recipe: Pomegranate Kale Super Shake


Sour tart pomegranate and nutritious kale are an antioxidant-charged power couple! If you can’t find pomegranate arils (the seeds of the pomegranate), use 2 tablespoons of unsweetened pom juice instead.


  • 1/2 cup torn kale leaves (stems discarded), any variety
  • 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 cup plain, unsweetened kefir, yogurt, or coconut yogurt
  • 1/4 cup pomegranate arils
  • 1 tablespoon chia or ground flax seeds
  • 1 scoop protein powder, vanilla or plain
  • 4 ice cubes


Place all the ingredients in a blender along with 1/2 cup cold water. Blend until smooth and serve immediately.
