Blueberry Kale Smoothie

This blueberry kale 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.

The antioxidant king, wild blueberries have two times more antioxidants than even ordinary blueberries. And they’re full of anthocyanins, which give them their deep purplish color and have been shown to fight inflammation in humans.

Kale is one of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet, and together, these make a delicious super powered food. This recipe makes a healthy and delicious addition to your meal planning for the week.

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.

This blueberry kale smoothie 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.
