Watermelon and Kale are two superfoods that (believe it or not) my three kids love! Last week we went out walking in our fun Alabama 97 degree heat, and I made this Watermelon Kale Smoothie topped with chia seeds and fresh watermelon and OMG it was so good! I know, I know. It looks weird at first. Trust me on this one. You just have to try it!
