This is another Vitamix recipe for weight loss that you might want to try out. It is very simple to make and doesn’t require much effort. All you need is some kale, apple, chia seeds, flax seeds, maple syrup, lemon juice, and, if you want, you could also add in some almond butter.

Kale Apple Smoothie

This smoothie is also rich in nutrients like vitamin C,  proteins, carbs, fiber, iron, and calcium. It also contains high fiber because of the chia seeds and kale.
