Blueberry Kale Smoothie

antioxidant blueberry kale smoothie

Do you prepare smoothies in the morning? Since my change in eating habits, I've started to whip them up more often. Although I prepare many different concoctions often on the fly, this is the one I most want to share. It comes from the nutritionist I visited and it is not only delicious but also loaded with nutrients and antioxidants. Her recipe did no call for chia seeds, but I add them for a boost omega 3, iron and protein. I promise you this is a great way to start the day.

Blueberry Kale Smoothie
3/4 c unsweetened almond milk
2 heaping T organic, low fat Greek yogurt
1/2 c blueberries
1-2 lacinto kale leaves, stemmed and torn into small pieces
1 - 2 T chia seeds (optional)
In a blender, puree almond milk, yogurt, blueberries and kale until smooth, with kale leaves looking like tiny specks. Pout into a glass and stir in chia seeeds for a boost of omega 3, iron and calcium. Let smoothie rest a few minutes to allow the chia seeds to absorb liquid and soften.
Serves 1.
