The combination of kale and avocado makes this healthy smoothie recipe extra green. Chia seeds lend this creamy smoothie a heart-healthy punch of fiber and omega-3 fatty acids.

Great idea for a green smoothie, followed directions except I used coconut milk because that's all I had in my fridge, it was really good. Light and delicious.
