Protein Blueberry Kale Smoothie - A protein-packed healthy yet equally tasty breakfast that can be made in just 5 min! And you won't even taste the kale!

Here’s what you need:

MY OTHER RECIPES


  • Blueberries. The fiber in the blueberries can help lower cholesterol in the blood and thus decrease heart disease.
  • Kale. This can help prevent cancer as chlorphyll, found in kale and other green veggies, binds to carcinogens preventing your body to absorb them. Incorporating kale into a smoothie is also an easy way to get those kids (or even difficult adults) to get their greens in!
  • Yogurt. This is an excellent source of probiotics which are essential for digestive tract health, not to mention a great source of protein, calcium, vitamin B2 and B12, potassium and magnesium.
  • Banana. Say hello to potatssium-central, a mineral that is necessary for your heart and blood pressure control.
  • Protein Powder. Protein is essential as a building block for the human body, and not just for muscles but also for tendons, organs, skins and hormones.
  • Oats. This is another great source of fiber, which is great for helping you feel full and helps lower bad cholesterol.
  • Chia. This is one of the most nutritious foods on the planet. They contain fiber, protein and omega-3 fatty acids, and fatty acids are great helping with skin, depression, asthma, ADHD, and many more.
