Blueberry Strawberry Kale Smoothie

It's official. I am obsessed with kale. Kale is packed with vitamins, iron, and calcium, so how can you NOT love it? Plus, by starting my day with this fruity/veggie full smoothie, it curbs my pre-lunch cravings. Make it easy on yourself and freeze individual servings in ziplock bags, so that in the morning you just dump it all in the blender and poof! You are on your way!

Blueberry Strawberry Kale Smoothie

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup blueberries (frozen or fresh)
  • 3 large strawberries (cut in half)
  • 1 cup packed kale leaves, washed and torn into pieces)
  • 2-3 spoonfuls vanilla greek yogurt
  • a small glass of fruit juice (ex: orange, pineapple, apple, get creative!)
  • pinch of cinnamon
Throw all of the ingredients into your blender and whirl until smooth and creamy. If you think it is too thick, feel free to add more juice until you get the consistency that you crave.

If you want to pre-pack and freeze; add the blueberries, strawberries, and kale together in a ziplock baggie. Store until ready to serve. When you are ready for a smoothie, add the frozen ingredients as well as the remaining ingredients into the blender and serve.
