Jan’s Blueberry Kale Smoothie

Jan is still on a blended food diet, so she has been making a lot of smoothies. The blueberries help a lot in disguising the dark green of the kale, so today’s smoothie looked quite presentable and tasty.  Jan thought it was delicious.

Note: I forgot to mention in my earlier post, but the reason for freezing the kale is that it breaks down the compound that causes the strong odor and also makes it easier to blend the kale into small bits.

Note: As I was watching Jan make her smoothie this morning, I noticed that she added ice to the blender. This is something she forgot to mention when she told me how she had made the last one. That is one of the goals of my blog, to discover the tricks that cooks consider too obvious to mention, but that are frequently the key to the dish coming out “right.”
