Frozen Berry Smoothie

Here’s a great smoothie I tend to make more in the summer, but it’s great any time of the year! I use frozen berries in this smoothie, which makes it convenient because I don’t have to worry about having fresh berries on hand—I just pop them out of the freezer whenever I want to make this!

Blueberry Green Tea Smoothie

I saw this smoothie at Food.com and was kind of intrigued by the blueberry/green tea combination, wondering just what that would taste like.

I had read awhile back that kale has 10 times the vitamin C, 4 times the vitamin A, almost 2 times the vitamin K, and more calcium and vitamin B6 than spinach does. If that’s true, kale is definitely super-nutritious!
