Tips:

How can I make my favourite flavours?

  • Creating your favourite flavours is easier than ever! After drizzling with oil use seasoning powders such as garlic, cheese and onion powders, as well as spices such as paprika and curry to create your very own flavours.

How do I know this is healthier than crisps?

  • Kale helps to boost digestive health. It also contains fibre, antioxidants, calcium, vitamins C and K, iron, and a wide range of other nutrients┬áthat are good for the body. This, paired with being baked in the oven compared to fried, makes kale crisps healthier than regular crisps.
