So recently I am obsessed with smoothies. The weather is shit, we are clearly not getting enough vitamins AND it’s freezing cold so it’s always good to give your immune system a nice little fruity boost.
Aside from that, making smoothies is a quick, easy and delicious way to get lots of fruit and veg that you may not otherwise eat (guilty here). Also they seem to magically stop sugar cravings for me if I have one in the morning and that’s always good!
This is a recipe for a creamy blueberry strawberry kale smoothie, it’s pretty delicious if I do say so myself! It’s a combo I adapted and changed from a recipe here. Kale is packed with lots of vitamins, iron and calcium so it’s a winner. It’s pretty hot right now, apparently.
What you need:
♥ Half a cup of blueberries (frozen or fresh)
♥ A couple of kale leaves
♥ A handful of strawberries (maybe 3 big ones!)
♥ 2-3 spoonfuls of natural yogurt
♥ A small glass full of fresh apple juice
♥ A tiny pinch of cinnamon
P.S If your smoothie consistency seems too thick for you, you can always add extra apple juice and blend again to make it thinner!
