Kale gives this smoothie a fresh green color. Together with other ingredients like oranges and chia seeds, it lives up to its name. 

Kale provides a broad variety of nutrients including many vitamins, fiber, and phytonutrients. This smoothie recipe uses raw kale, which has more nutritional value than cooked kale. Most cooking processes destroy heat-sensitive vitamins, which remain available in raw kale.

Native to Mexico, chia seeds are a gluten-free pseudo-grain (they do not actually belong to the grain family). They are a rich source of calcium, iron, soluble fiber, antioxidants including phenolic acids, and polyunsaturated fatty acids—especially the essential acid alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). When properly dried, whole chia seeds can be stored for years.

The best way for our body to access the nutrients in chia seeds is by eating ground seeds.
