Kale Tip 1: Blueberry Kale Smoothie

by Coco

Blueberry Kale SmoothieYou are going to love this delicious smoothie.  I make it for my kids all the time and it's one of my personal favorite smoothie recipes. We all know that blueberries and bananas are tasty and good for us, but have your given kale a try?  I have started to use it a lot in our meals, but my kids are still a little reluctant to eat it.  However, this recipe is one of my favorites because the kids forget that it has kale in it - the smoothie is sweet from the almond milk and blueberries.

I love that enjoy a nutrient packed option to start their morning or a quick refuel after school. You will love it too!  Kale is just such an awesome superfood.  It's a veggie loaded with vitamin A, C and K and it's a good source of iron, calcium, magnesium and potassium. More kale recipes to come.

Play around with the milk serving, depending on the consistency you like. All you need to do is blend all of the above ingredients in a blender and voila!  If you don't like almond milk, try coconut milk.  Of course, you can always use regular milk too, I am just trying to use less dairy around here...

This is what you need:

  • 1 cup of frozen blueberries
  • 1 cup of frozen banana
  • 1 cup of frozen kale
  • 1 tablespoon of flax powder
  • 2 cups of vanilla almond milk
  • 1 tablespoon of coconut shreds (raw and unsweetened)
