Blueberry Kale Smoothie

I realize that this is a crazy long list but cut out your processed foods and junk foods and you’re pretty much good to go. I’m a huge advocate of the farm to table approach and am always happy to support our local farms and markets.

I used to work for a local organic foods company where I live and people would constantly ask me why they should buy organic or natural. For me, it’s just how food was always meant to be. Real food minus all the crap.

I know I mentioned it before, but I just can’t get enough of this smoothie!

    Thanks Angie. This is information that everyone should learn about. I don’t see any good in GMOs. Watermelon is my favorite example. When growing up with seeded melons they tasted much sweeter, the reason being, seeds produce a natural hormone that change the flavor of the crop. That’s why seedless melons taste less sweet and are more akin to flavored ice in my opinion.

    Can’t wait to try one of your shakes, definitely something I could nosh on. ~.^ Thanks again for sharing!!

  • Zeeona @ Basil and Strawberry says:

    So true about organic food! The additional good thing about leaving processed food out of your diet is that it is much cheaper, too

  • Paul Anthony Prince says:

    Or maybe I should have said flavorless ice, because your recipe for flavored ice looks amazingly delish!!

  • Tandy says:

    good post! And a great breakfast smoothie

  • Marta @ What Should I Eat For Breakfast Today? says:

    I’ve been trying to get kale over here and I can’t find it…

  • Suzie says:

    That’s why I love having a garden. Throughout the summer it goes from garden to table. To make this last I can a lot from the garden, it gets us through until the next season and the freshness is in each jar…yay! Great video, I need to try and find a few things on there. Your smoothie sounds great, in fact your smoothie recipe is probably the best one I’ve seen by far!

  • GMO is the devil says:

    that’s why I always eat ungenetically modified bacon

  • Hannah (BitterSweet) says:

    As long as they don’t touch our kale, we will persevere! It’s a broken system that can only continue hobbling along for so long. More people than ever are demanding change, and if there’s one thing these companies care about, it’s money. They will go where the money is, and that’s why it’s more important than ever to buy organic.

  • Suzie says:

    Had to come back and say I bought the acai juice today! Yay!! So happy I could find it here…smoothies for breakfast

  • The Squishy Monster says:

    Love that stuff…yay, Suzie!!

  • The Squishy Monster says:

    I just read an article that was forwarded to me today about how Monsanto’s GMO corn was fed to rats and how they developed tumors and organ damage EEK!

  • The Squishy Monster says:

    Double YUM!

  • The Squishy Monster says:

    I’m so jelly about your garden—my ultimate dream includes owing a garden one day (have you seen Ina’s? I die)!!! =D

  • The Squishy Monster says:

    I’ve also done this with Spinach and enjoy that as well =D

  • The Squishy Monster says:

    Love this smoothie!!

  • The Squishy Monster says:

    ohhh yes =D

  • The Squishy Monster says:

    aw, thanks Paul!!

  • The Squishy Monster says:

    I had no idea about the hormones that seeds carry…see? Ya do learn something new everyday

  • The Squishy Monster says:

    Thank YOU, Les =D

  • The Squishy Monster says:

    It’s super hard (the evil craving devil is always on the verge of attack)!

  • Inger Wilkerson says:

    Good cause! I buy as much as I can right off the farm. I like to know “where my food has been!”

  • Asmita (@FoodieAsmita) says:

    This is such great breakfast smoothie. Will try it out soon!

  • Suzie says:

    Yes, I’ve seen hers. I hate her….ha ha ha…just kidding

  • DWei says:

    That list is really massive. What am I going to eat as a University student now?

  • The Squishy Monster says:

    I hope you love it!!

  • The Squishy Monster says:

    I most definitely agree!!

  • The Squishy Monster says:
  • yummychunklet says:

    That’s quite a list, but if it means better food, no problem!

  • The Squishy Monster says:

    I knooow I practically lived on canned soup and ramen at university. I’d say stick to as many whole foods as possible.

  • Cakelaw says:

    I am also in favour of farm to the table but find it hard to do as a city slicker.

  • Paul Anthony Prince says:

    Finally got my lazy butt around to trying this out. Got all my ingredients ready to toss in the blended but I forgot to get nanners >.< So I tossed a Greek yogurt in the freezer while I got ready and used it instead once it was semi frozen. It still turned out fantabulous!!

    Thanks for sharing this super-food way to start your day!!

    Warmest Regards,
    Paul

  • The Squishy Monster says:

    LOVE greek yogurt. I’m very glad you got to try this. It’s something that I’ve convinced everyone but my baby brother to take

  • Paul Anthony Prince says:

    Ok… random question here. I was re-stocking on my ingredients for your amazeballs shakes and I had a question about your nanners. Do you peel them before you freeze them? I tossed mine in the freezer without thinking and went to grab one and couldn’t figure out how to peel a frozen banana. ~.^ I’m wondering if I ruined them by doing that. >.<

    Thanks in advance^^ Hope you're having a great week and an awesome Halloween.

    Warmest Regards,
    -Paul

  • The Squishy Monster says:

    Hey Paul! Great question. I like to buy a bunch that are on the clearance rack, peel, quarter, and spread them in a single layer on a baking sheet. When they’ve individually frozen, I freeze them in portioned bags/tupperware, tagged with labels with dates on them. Allowing them to thaw and come to room temperature make baking breads/muffins/cakes convenient for whenever you’re ready to use them. For whole frozen Bananas, simply allow them to thaw and cut off one end. Despite their browned “clothes,” the fruit inside is fine. Just gently squeeze (like toothpaste) or cut down the entire length of it with a sharp paring knife. Hope this helps =)
