Blueberry Kale Superfood Smoothie

A perfect workout drink or green smoothie to power through your morning. With fun superfoods like cocao powder and ground flaxseed and coconut oil, you will be sipping goodness in no time. Feel free to sub for whatever milk you desire but if you are using sweetened nut milks, the smoothie may be too sweet since the pineapple and blueberries add a nice sweetness.

Ingredients

1 tablespoon of extra virgin coconut oil, melted **

1 cup kale, finely chopped, tough stems removed

1/2 cup frozen or fresh blueberries

1 teaspoon ground flaxeed

1 teaspoon chia seeds

1/2 cup unsweetened rice milk

2 pineapple rings, chopped, or 1/2 cup frozen pineapple

Directions

Blend until all ingredients are mixed well.

** You may want to omit this if you are trying to lose weight. I personally have not noticed weight gain from coconut oil and it is a dose of heart healthy fats, but I have read that it is a high calorie food that may not be suited for everyone.
