Blueberry Smoothie Recipe with Kale and Carrot

blueberry smoothie recipeThis healthy smoothie recipe uses three of the biggest superfoods on the planet: kale, blueberries, and carrots. Here’s why they’re so good for you:

Kale:

  • Excellent source of vitamins A, C, and K and phytonutrients.
  • May have anti-cancer properties due to high vitamin K levels.
  • Rich in the eye-health promoting lutein and zeaxanthin compounds.

Carrots:

  • Can help prevent cardiovascular disease and cancer.
  • Can improve your eyesight and protect your eyes from age-related diseases.
  • High in antioxidants (disease-fighting compounds).

Blueberries:

  • Highest level of antioxidants of all fruits.
  • Good source of immune-boosting vitamin C.
  • High in fiber, which helps improve your digestive system.
  • Helps aid bone development.

The blueberries give this one a very cool purple color too. Here are the specs for my healthy Blueberry Smoothie Recipe.
