Blueberry Kale Smoothie

I don’t like to eat vegetables.  My husband is usually kind enough to remind me to eat them a couple times a week because if he doesn’t,  I will mind the month away without eating a single green.  It’s pretty sad.  However, I’m adult, or at least I’m supposed to act like one since I’m in my late 30s,  and I was happy as a clam when I read in The Paleo Approach  that you can safely eat raw greens.  I have been avoiding green smoothies like the plague because I was afraid of the goitrogenic effect of cruciferous vegetables.

So, I went to the market and picked up some baby kale and whipped up this paleo blueberry kale smoothie.   Ok, if you have not eaten a lot of greens a in while, start with spinach smoothies.   I put way too much kale in my first batch and I felt like I was drinking a swamp. It was not fun.  However, the Little drank his weight  in it.  The next time I made this I cut the kale in half and it was perfect.   The blueberries and banana pretty much were  the only thing I could taste so I was happy to up my veggie intake and have a nice drink with breakfast.

    What is the gelatin for?
    I make my smoothies with spinach – I just can’t get into kale yet…
    1 cup each: orange juice
    pineapple juice
    plain greek yogurt
    spinach
    frozen berries – I use the bags of mixed berries
    2 frozen bananas

    Tastes great! I substituted blackberries for blueberries. And this made one regular serving for me, not 2.
