This smoothie is packed with two superfoods: kale and wild blueberries. I grow kale in my garden every summer, freeze it, and use it in this smoothie all winter long.
Note: I use wild blueberries as opposed to cultivated blueberries as the nutritional component sky rockets in the wild blueberries. The wild blueberry has less water and is therefore smaller, but has more flavour. It has 2x the antioxidants of the cultivated ones. Also, I found that when I used the cultivated blueberries, the smoothie would thicken and gel more than with the wild blueberries. You can find both kinds at most grocery stores.
1 1/2 cups frozen kale
1 cup frozen wild blueberries
1/2 cup water
1 Tbsp honey
1 Tbsp flax seed oil or coconut oil
Blend all together and enjoy!
This is so great for getting greens into your kids (as well as yourself), especially the reluctant ones who don’t like green veggies. When the ingredients are blended, you won’t see any green, and this smoothie is sweet! It’s pretty much the blueberry flavour you taste.
