Blueberry Kale Breakfast Smoothie
Breakfast is really important to me. This is why I am always looking for new and creative breakfast ideas. Smoothies are a great way to incorporate a lot of good-for-you stuff, specially when you want your kids to eat lots of fruits and veggies.
Let’s face it. Kids are not really into kale. They are not really into “green” leaves in general, at least my kids aren’t, and making a breakfast smoothie is the perfect way to “hide” that super nutritious green leaf. You can actually include as many healthy ingredients/supplements as you want, like probiotics, multivitamins, collagen, ginger, or aloe vera.
What I like to do in the mornings is make a breakfast smoothie for my family. I try to change the flavors all the time so they don’t get bored, but so far, they are always excited about their smoothies. My kids have been drinking breakfast smoothies for years!
This blueberry kale smoothie is very easy to make, and the combination of blueberries and kale is just amazing. I also like to use coconut water as my liquid base because it kind of gives it a sweeter twist and I don’t need to add any more sugar to my recipe. You can also try this breakfast smoothie recipe it with water, yogurt, or any type of milk if you prefer.
Blueberries + Kale = Breakfast Smoothie Awesomeness
Two super nutritious ingredients are needed for this breakfast smoothie recipe. Blueberries are full of antioxidants and vitamins. Blueberries help improve brain function and eating them in the mornings will help you stay focused and alert throughout the day.

Now let’s talk about kale. I just see the name and immediately think healthy. Kale contains protein, fiber, and lots of vitamins and minerals. Kale is rich in Folate, a B vitamin that’s key for brain development. It also contains omega-3 fatty acids. Kale is a super food with staying power.

Blueberry Kale Breakfast Smoothie
A simple smoothie recipe made with two super healthy ingredients: blueberries and kale. You can add your favorite supplements also.
2 cups of coconut water (You can also use any type of milk, water or yogurt)
1 1/2 cups of frozen blueberries
1/2 cup kale
Blend everything together in a high speed blender. Blueberries need to be frozen for best results. Serve right away. You can also add any supplement you want.
* If you want to add a boost of protein, blend it with a scoop of collagen.
*If you want to add more vitamins for the kids, add a good multivitamin.
*If you want to boost the immune system, add probiotics.
Nutrition information varies depending on the supplements you use. You can use one or several supplements at once.
I like to add collagen to my kids' smoothies at least 3 times a week. It gives an extra protein boost.
I add probiotics daily for a couple of months and then give them a break for another couple of moths before starting them again. Probiotics help strengthen the immune system.
I always add a complete and all natural multivitamin for my kids.
