Blueberry Kale Smoothie

My Favourite Smoothies

I make myself a glass of smoothie every morning. Today I used blueberries and Kale.

Both are low in calories, have dietary fibre and vitamin C.

I also added a handful of cashew nuts which are rich in iron and magnesium. I really liked this smoothie so I decided to post it.

Blueberries are an excellent source of fibrevitamin C and manganese. They are small, juicy and low in calories. On average, they range from 50-70 calories per cup.

They can be eaten ripe or added as an ingredient in cereal, yoghurt, pancakes, muffins, pies and tarts and fruit salads. They can also be dried or used to make jam or wine.

Combine everything and blend till smooth. Serve.
