I’m not sure how I feel about the term “superfood.” I do understand what is meant — describing a food that offers one or more extraordinary nutritional attributes. And I do love how certain foods are just bursting in nutritional value, particularly the blueberry, kale, and flax used here! But I’m not really a fan of the fact that calling something a “superfood” infers that other foods are less important…when really, it’s important to eat a variety of different fruits, vegetables, proteins, grains, etc, because they all offer different nutrients.
Ah well, I’m getting a little nit-picky. 😉 That being said, I did in fact title this recipe “superfood” and I do think these ingredients deserve it. Hope you enjoy this as much as I did! Such a perfect breakfast/snack for a June sunny day.
- 3-4 cups fresh kale, stems removed (I used a mixture of kale and spinach)
- 1 ripe banana
- 1 cup almond milk (or other milk)
- 2 tbs ground flaxseed
- 1 cup frozen (or fresh) blueberries
- Ice cubes
Add all ingredients to a blender, beginning with the kale and/or spinach.
Blend until smooth! Enjoy with a good book in the sunshine. 🙂
