Blueberries and Red Kale make a fantastic green smoothie combination. I’ve been dogging the kale for months reaching for Swiss chard, parsley and spinach (even lettuce) rather than picking up with vegan special. Yet, on the advice of one of my favorite yoga instructors, I broke down and picked up some kale to give it one more go.
As it turns out, this Red Kale mixes really well with blueberries! I would have never guessed – but my yoga instructor did!
I’ve always reached for the lemon to tame kale, but it looks like there is a match in the berry-world.
I can’t believe when I was putting this one together that I totally forgot the blueberries!
- 1 full bunch Red Kale (stems removed)
- 1 crisp apple (seeded and quartered (or better))
- 3 madjohl dates
- 1 cup dark seedless grapes
- 1 to 2 cups frozen blueberries
- 1 cup water
- ½ cup coconut milk
- Juice of ½ lemon (if it’s juicy, else 1 lemon)
- 1 probiotic
- 1 serving ORMUS powder
Like most other smoothies that I put together, liquids first followed by soft fruit than harder fruit. In this case, water, coconut milk, lemon juice, grapes, blueberries, quartered apples (or even smaller) and dates. Blend until big chunks are broken down. It should taste fantastic at this point. Kind of like blueberry sorbet.
Next, stuff in kale and give it a good spin. The frozen blueberries will keep this on cold for a long time so blending can go for almost two minutes. When you get to blend this long you really break things down to the point where it’s easy to drink.
Finally, add the ORMUS and probiotic and give it a good mixing. Not need to go long, just stir it around.
I think I’ve found a new way to love kale. I’m also warming up to blueberries.
If you’re having a hard time getting to like kale, try this combo. I believe you’ll find it quite satisfying!
