Curly Kale and Blueberry Smoothie

It’s quick, it’s easy, it’s good for you – and it tastes delicious. Honestly!

I’ll be honest, I wasn’t sure how this would turn out as I added each ingredient in to the blender. I certainly didn’t tell the vegetarian what was in it, lest he be influenced before tasting it.

It was a triumph. A super not so green smoothie to get you going first thing with an ideal balance of veg and fruit for those of you suspicious of the green juice recipe I posted here earlier.

serves 2

125g frozen organic blueberries
100g organic curly kale
1 frozen banana (chopped into 4 before freezing)
700ml coconut water

  1. Combine all the ingredients in blender, whizz up and serve. Easy peasy.

I dare say you could substitute spinach for kale if that’s what you have in the veg box. But I’d definitely insist on frozen fruit to make this the optimum temperature and consistency. And the coconut water? You can’t taste any coconut. Promise.

Think about shuzzing it up even more with a teaspoon of spirulina. I totally forgot to add it in this time.
