Blueberries are always a toss up with smoothie making. Sometimes they turn your drink bright blue and other times, more of a brown or purple if you are lucky.
Fortunately, my kids think that the grosser the drink looks, the better it will taste. It really shouldn’t surprise me that the deliciously ugly smoothie is still one of their favorites.
I made this smoothie the other night, when I realized that dinner was going to be served at least an hour later than expected. It was the perfect snack and I didn’t hear any choruses of “When is dinner going to be ready?” while I finished cooking dinner.
Kale is great but Blueberry Carrot Top Smoothies are a surprising delight.
