The easiest Blueberry Kale Smoothie for your morning!

Updated: Sep 9



If you follow me on Instagram, then you know I am obsessed with a good green smoothie.


My body craves them from time to time so I try to make one at least every week but two times a year I actually do a community GREEN SMOOTHIE CHALLENGE.


This just means that we, as a group, drink one green smoothie a day on top of what you normally eat. I love doing it first thing before consuming anything else so that my blood is rushed with high quality nutrition before any other food enters my system.


I have absolutely loved trying different flavor combos and this one has to be my actual favorite! It's refreshing, sweet enough, packed with antioxidants, greens and protein. I love the slight hint of coconut and lemon that comes through too.


It's super easy to make, just blend all of the ingredients together & serve chilled! If you need substitutions see my notes below! Hope you enjoy this smoothie.


If you make it, please tag me on Instagram so I can repost!


Here's a video tutorial for you visual people!


INGREDIENTS


  • 1 cup frozen blueberries

  • 1/2 frozen banana

  • 1/2 cup coconut milk

  • 1 scoop vanilla protein

  • I used my favorite Nuzest Clean Vanilla Protein

  • It's vegan, tastes delicious & only uses a few simple ingredients! Use code recipes4health to save you some cash.

  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds

  • Large handful of spinach (about 1-2 cups)

  • Large handful of kale (about 1-2 cups)

  • 1 teaspoon of lemon juice

  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon


DIRECTIONS


  1. Blend everything in a high powered blender & enjoy!


SUBSTITUTIONS


  • Swap the blueberries for frozen strawberries or mixed berries.

  • I use canned coconut milk (its much creamier) but you could use regular or another plant based milk. I think oat milk would work best in this recipe.

  • Any vanilla protein powder will work!

  • Sub the chia seeds for any other healthy fat like hemp seeds or flaxseeds!

  • If you don't have both greens on hand just double up on one of them! I love to store my spinach in the freezer, that way its always cold and ready for smoothies!

  • Lemon juice can be omitted but I highly recommend it as it tastes really refreshing and gives it a zest.
