It tastes like liquid kale candy, contains powerhouse of nutrients, and boosts happiness and overall well-being? Yes, please!

That’s the promise of this month’s smoothie, which has the ingredients to back it up.

Kale and parsley are loaded with folate, which help repair damage done at happy hour. (Not that you need it, of course.)

High in fiber and phytonutrients, tart-and-sweet grapefruit has cleansing properties and is bursting with vitamin C—just half a grapefruit contains almost 80% of the daily requirement.

And grapefruit and kale are foods that actually make us more happy, because they’re high in carotenoid antioxidants. (Harvard researchers found that there was a direct correlation between  these antioxidants and optimism.)

And if you’re watching your sugar, green apple and grapefruit have some of the lowest for fruit. Green apple may even help regulate blood sugar, replenishing glucose after workouts. And electrolytes in coconut water make this another great post-workout smoothie choice. —Jennifer Kass
