Blueberry Kale Smoothie

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.

Ingredients:

1 apple

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

Serves 1.

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.

Using a salad spinner has been super helpful for me! I grow a lot of leafy greens in my veggie garden and so this gets a lot of use. I use it with lettuce, kale, beet greens and certain herbs.
Wash; spin; eat or freeze and repeat! It’s a time saver.
This Vitamix blender has been a staple in my kitchen for years, and it’s my go-to for smoothies. I highly recommend it.
