Kale Smoothie Recipe
This one is another way I’m learning to love kale. I had some leftover from last week’s tabbouleh and blended it into a smoothie with blueberries and banana. It was delicious and best of all, blended well into the mix and was barely recognizable. I thought I’d share this smoothie with you in case you too are developing a liking for kale. We could all add more greens to our life, couldn’t we?
This smoothie may not look green but it has a whopping full cup of kale. The anthocyanins in blueberries give them a strong pigmentation that covers the color of other ingredients. Not that we mind; a purple smoothie is a gorgeous smoothie to sip on.
On another note, I have finally received my master’s degree (in education with an emphasis on language teaching — no surprises, I haven’t switched to biochemistry midway). I have been done since April but wanted to wait to have my diploma in hand before really saying so. I’m so happy to be finished with school forever and ever and ever and ever. It’s a great feeling. Hopefully, my incessant griping about homework, deadlines and feeling overwhelmed will be over, and this blog will be a whine-free zone once again. Wait, has it ever been?
