Not all healthy smoothies have to be green. Blueberries mask the green kale in this delicious smoothie.
Well. Last night’s game stunk. I scared the cat with my cries of anguish as I watched the painful 4 hour game, losing to an unranked Virginia Tech. I have to say they played extremely well for an unranked team. And Ohio State made a lot of mistakes. Guess if you have to lose, better to do it at the beginning of the season. But anyway, this is s food blog not sports so I’ll get on with it haha.
Want to know the trick to making the green color from healthy green stuff magically disappear? Apparently all you have to do is add blueberries. Believe it or not there is a full, packed cup of kale in this smoothie and only 1/2 cup of blueberries, yet all you see is this pretty purple smoothie. If you look closely you can see little flecks of green but who gets up close and personal with their smoothie? Drink up and feel good about it.
