Saturday Smoothie! Superfood Blueberry Kale Chia Protein Blast!

To say i haven't been eating healthy lately would be the understatement of the year. So, I decided to make a protein smoothie loaded with fruit, veggies and proteins today.  This one is chock-full of anti-oxidants, vitamins and minerals and protein, basically a superfood smoothie.

I decided to go with a ton of kale, organic frozen blueberries, Chia seeds, Almond/coconut milk, some stevia and kelp (for the thyroid). Note: I don't use kelp powder regularly as I am acne prone and it can cause acne for me if I use it too often.

The kale and chia seeds are packed with protein, add in some protein powder of your choice and you've got protein packed smoothie!  I left out bananas in this one as I wanted a lower sugar content. I might crave it, but sugar is NOT my friend!

This is my favourite, go-to protein powder by Natural Factors. It's a whey powder so for dairy sensitive individuals or vegans, there are many other plant based protein powders on the market, Natural Factors carries some as well. I purchase mine at my local health food store for around $30.

Here is the finished product:

I can barely taste the kale as their is so much flavour and sweetness from the blueberries and a bit of stevia.

Superfood Blueberry Kale Chia Protein Blast

  • 2 cups of kale (packed down in the mug) 
  • Frozen Blueberries to the fill line
