This Orange Blueberry Kale Smoothie is so nourishing and delicious. It’s packed with antioxidants & vitamin C to give you healthy, gorgeous, glowing skin!

Big Tex and I really loved this smoothie {OK, maybe Big Tex really LIKED it}, and my husband and SiSi really didn’t care for it at all.

No way.

No how.

No thanks.

At all!

But, as Sam I Am might say…

You do not like a kale smoothie?

Try it! Try it! And you may see.

You’ll really like my kale smoothie!

OK, OK…Enough of my rhyming, and more of the reasoning behind my blueberry kale smoothie…

I decided to take on a challenge and try offering something to my kids that I was afraid they wouldn’t like.

Now, overall, SiSi and Tex are both pretty good eaters when it comes to trying new things and eating lots of fruit.  Veggies, on the other hand can be hit or miss.  Both like carrots, raw sugar snap peas, artichokes, and sweet potatoes  SiSi also likes cucumbers, bell peppers, and the occasional bit of salad {when there is plenty of feta on top}, and Big Tex will eat asparagus when it’s wrapped in prosciutto. {Yum!}

But, so far, at 8 and 10, neither one is keen on broccoli, spinach {unless inside ravioli}, and all those gosh darn SUPER HEALTHY leafy greens I’m always raving about here, here, and here on this blog.

Oh, and in case you were wondering {You WERE wondering, right???} the husband is pretty adventurous with his tastes and likes MOST everything I make, with the exception of cold soups, my parsnip and apple soup {really yum!} and, as I have just learned, kale smoothies.

I could have taken the cowards way out, and sneaked the kale in without telling anyone…

I mean, it’s not like it’s a green {colored} smoothie or anything, right?

Yes, I’ll be honest…

There is a faint hint of kale that you taste in this smoothie, but mostly it’s a icy sweet orangey blueberryish delight that goes down super smooth and makes you fell uber healthy for drinking it.

Really.

But, if you’ve been reading my blog for awhile, you know that s.n.e.a.k.y. is NOT how I role in the kitchen, so I had to tell my kids and hubbie what was in the smoothie.

And, in the end, with 50 percent of our household liking it, I’m batting 500.

Not too shabby, I’d say!

If the thought of drinking a Orange Blueberry Kale Smoothie scares you, I hope you {and any kiddos you may have} face up to your fears and give it a try!

I know this guy thinks you should try it…

This dinosaur loves dino kale!
