Collard Greens

Collard greens generally conjure up images of southern soul food dishes stewed in ham fat and smothered in butter. While we don't suggest extracting those collards in the NutriBullet, fresh, raw collard greens are some of the most nutritious plants on the planet! These leaves are low in calories (only 11 per cup) and high in fiber, vitamins K, A, and C, manganese, and antioxidants.

Selection Process

Look for firm, deep green, unwilted leaves. Smaller leaves will be tastier and more tender than larger ones. To store, place collards in a plastic bag and remove as much air as possible. They will keep in the refrigerator for 3 to 5 days.
