Gracious greens are the name of the game with this delicious, incredibly good-for-you blend. Kale is one of the healthiest vegetables around. There’s a reason why the dark, leafy green has been on dinner plates since Roman times; kale helps detoxify the body and is packed with vitamins and filled with flavonoid compounds such as beta-carotene and lutein.

Coconut probably makes you think of tropical islands, white sands, warm sunshine, and umbrella drinks, but coconut is also a rich, natural source of medium-chain triglycerides. When blood sugar is low, triglycerides are converted into a source of fuel for the brain; it's also believed they help with memory. Another thing that makes this smoothie a keeper is that you only need a few ingredients. It’s a no-frills brain booster.
