Not only am I passionate about eating CHEAP but I’m also passionate about eating HEALTHY! This blueberry banana smoothie recipe is not only SUPER healthy and chalked full of vitamins and nutrients but it’s also amazingly sweet and delicious, you wouldn’t even know there are greens hidden in there – WHAT?
That’s right – the key ingredient to taking this healthy blueberry banana smoothie recipe is KALE. Gross! No, not gross! You can’t even taste it! The sugar from the blueberries and banana cover up any hint of kale in this smoothie, it’s just bonus nutrients! Don’t believe me? Try it for yourself.
Kale is a super food – it is one of the healthiest vegetables on the planet. Full of Vitamin K and Vitamin A, cancer preventing and detoxifying. Sneaking 2-3 leaves of kale into your morning blueberry banana smoothie is sure to provide you with great long term health benefits.
Not to mention that blueberries themselves are their own super food! Blueberries have one of the highest antioxidant capacities among all fruits and vegetables. Antioxidants are essential to optimizing health by helping to combat the free radicals that can damage cellular structures as well as DNA – whoa, too much science, back to the FOOD!
Now for the real surprise – not only does this blueberry banana smoothie have KALE, but it also has CHIA! That’s right, ch-ch-ch-Chia! These little black seeds have taken the world by storm for a GREAT reason. Full of omega-3s, anti-oxidants, blah blah blah. By now everyone should know about the wonderful benefits of chia seeds, just add them to your smoothie!
