RunnerBean Recipies – Winter Kale Ginger Smoothie

There is no better way to get all your daily nutrients in to your body than by a smoothie. I’m a great fan of smoothies, granted cleaning can be a pain at times, so leave plenty of hot water for your smoothie maker to soak afterwards! In today’s recipe, we are using mainly ginger and kale. Kale contains compounds called glucosinolates that have been shown to have anticancer properties. Adding fresh ginger and a kiwi—which provides more than a day’s worth of vitamin C—helps soften the natural bitterness of the leafy green.

Ingredients
1 cup unsweetened coconut water
½ cup low-fat plain yogurt
1 kiwi fruit, peeled
1 large kale leaf, center rib removed
1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
1 teaspoon honey
Pinch of salt
½ cup ice cubes

Instructions
In a blender, combine the coconut water, yogurt, kiwi, kale, ginger, honey, salt, and ice. Blend until smooth. Serves 1.

ABOUT GENERALI MÜNCHEN MARATHON

The cityscape of the home of Munich Marathon is characterized by centuries-old buildings and numerous museums. The Bavarian capital is known for the annual Oktoberfest and it’s sportiness. In the old town on the central Marienplatz there are landmarks such as the neo-Gothic New Town Hall, whose popular carillon plays melodies and stories from the 16th century.

The city of München Marathon is a natural habitat of Mediterranean-style street cafes, highbrow art and high-tech industry, Germany’s unofficial southern capital is a flourishing success story that revels in its own contradictions. If you’re looking for Alpine clichés, they’re all here, but the Bavarian metropolis has many an unexpected sides to be discovered.

With that being said, the Munich Marathon is the place to be!!

Whoever has competed in one of the editions of München Marathon knows that tingling sensation. The concentration and tension of the runners is tangible; only subsiding when the starter’s pistol finally sounds and your sightseeing tour through Munich starts right away.
