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.
Blueberry Banana Kale Smoothie
- 1 cup orange juice
- 2 extra large leaves of kale stems removed if your blender will not puree them completely
- 2 bananas
- 1 cup frozen blueberries
- Layer into the blender as listed above and puree until completely smooth. Enjoy!

These smoothies need to be made into a book! This one is the prettiest yet.
This just reminds me that I need to make more smoothies!! It actually sounds really good!

I've never tried making my own smoothies!
It sounds like you've taught your kids well! I definitely live under the assumption that the more weirdly colored a dish is, the better it will taste. (mmm curry). So this is probs amazing.

I love the color of this smoothie. Love the blueberries, but not sure on the kale.
This was easy to make & so delicious! Not only did I love it, but my kids did as well! I will definitely be making it again!

Kristin – Smoothies are so fun aren’t they? Such an easy way to sneak a few veggies into the kids.
