Father’s Day is tomorrow, and if you haven’t planned breakfast for Dad yet, have no fear! This simple recipe from Spicebox Kitchen requires 5 ingredients (or less), and comes together in less than a minute. The kale adds a vibrant color while also contributing a serving of greens. Also, it’s spikeable (with rum), if that’s how Dad likes to celebrate. And if he likes to cook, you can also get him a copy of Spicebox Kitchen!
Cheers to Dad with this Piña Kaleada!

Pineapples are not only tropical, sweet and juicy but they are an excellent source of vitamin C and antioxidants. They also contain an enzyme, bromelain, which helps with digestion and inflammation.
Kale is full of fiber, iron, magnesium, potassium, vitamins A, C, K and B vitamins, plus lots of antioxidants.
