I always keep a stash of blueberries in my freezer just for smoothies like this! Love the addition of chia seeds. So filling and nutritious!
I prefer to eat my calories instead of drinking them. But I suppose if this is healthy, it'd be a great snack after a workout.
What beautiful rich color in this smoothie. I bet it's chock full of vitamins. Perfect for this time of year to help fight off all those nasty colds going around.
This looks great! I usually use spinach over kale in my smoothies because the kale never seems to get chopped up enough!

Ugh I wish it was warm so I could make this smoothie Julie!! 36 degrees and a cold smoothie don't seem to mesh well. Definitely bookmarking this for the summer though!
