Blueberry Kale Smoothie

Blueberry Kale Smoothie
This blueberry kale smoothie recipe ~ ( http://www.skinnytaste.com/2014/01/blueberry-kale-smoothie.html ) ~ was a great find…and a keeper!  I bought a huge bag of pre-chopped kale over the holidays to make my Sweet Potato Lasagna recipe and I have been trying various smoothie recipes with the remaining kale.  This one has been the absolute best without a hint of the kale taste, but with all of it’s nutritional value. 
 
I made it according to the recipe, using Justin’s Maple Almond Butter in place of the peanut butter.  I used Medjool dates as I find they are the sweetest and juiciest.  The first time I made this recipe, my powerful Vitamix blender really protested.  The second time I made it, I chopped up the dates and used crushed ice instead of ice cubes.  This did the trick. 
 
Don’t let the color of the smoothie deter you from trying it! I’ve been trying to banish my sweet tooth following all the holiday festivities.  I find this recipe satisfies my sweet cravings while being healthy and filling.  Enjoy!
