JOE ROGAN KALE GREEN SMOOTHIE SHAKE
Joe Rogan makes his kale shake almost every morning! Of course the UFC commentator and mixed martial artist learned how blending your greens makes “eating” them much easier as well as how healthy and nutritious they are for you! This vegetable drink is the perfect breakfast shake and we see why he loves it so much. Few ingredients can simply be the perfect way to introduce yourself to green smoothies, and this one packs a powerful punch! We have seen Joe Rogan use both a Vitamix and a Blendtec blender to make his kale shake, so obviously he is well aware of the two best high powered blenders out there! 🙂
