Blue-Green Banana Smoothie

Organic kale. It sounds like the perfect green. Everyone just can stop talking about all the nice things about it. But what happens when you or someone in your family is a picky eater? This nutritionally dense smoothie is the perfect solution to hiding all the health benefits behind the sweetness of a bananas and blueberries. Don’t get me wrong, I love kale, especially the Sesame Kale in the deli case. I prefer Lacinato kale over curly kale but to each their own. The Lacinato kale is slightly milder in taste and is a wonderful addition to¬†any smoothie. Another convenient kale to use is our organic baby kale.

One thing I hate about smoothies is the amount of effort it takes to prepare. To avoid the hassle of getting out the blender for each smoothie, I make them in large batches and freeze them individually. By the time lunch roles around, my smoothie is unthawed and ready to enjoy.
