Blueberry and Kale Smoothie

Blueberry and Kale Smoothie

Scarlett and I have an on-off love affair with smoothies. We go through fazes when they’re all we crave in a day and then other times when they fall from our radar. Take the past few months, I haven’t made a single smoothie. Maybe it was the endless, battering of cold. Or maybe the fact that I’ve been trying to conserve the Summer berries I picked then froze. Regardless, until recently, we hadn’t had a single smoothie. Now we can’t stop drinking them. Take today for instance. Scarlett had a little ditty with strawberry, banana, mango and orange juice while I had a juice containing carrot, apple, beet, celery, cucumber and parsley. We already made a plan for tomorrow including banana, yogurt, almond milk and almond butter. It’s okay. You can steal our idea.

Or you could make this one. It was on our rotation in the fall and I recently resurrected it. I swear you can’t taste the kale. No, seriously. Not that I mind tasting kale, but it’s great to give to the little people who taste kale even when there is no kale in something but taste it there any way because they don’t want to eat it. Did I just confuse you? Just drink this and you get the benefits of kale. Got it?
