Wyman’s of Maine is a company that produces wonderful quality frozen fruit. I’ve mentioned them before in my review here. Well folks, they’ve created a new product for us fruit lovers……a combo with a bit of a twist…..Strawberries, Blueberries, Cherries & Kale!! Yep, greens are in the mix, and they are absolutely delish in my opinion.
I recently visited my health food store and immediately noticed the “Greens” display. If you aren’t familiar, there are a variety of powdered blends on the market that combine various, grasses, alfalfa, spinach, kelp etc. offering rich nutrients for those of us who don’t get enough green food in our normal diet. If you’ve ever had a kiddo complain about eating spinach or sprouts raise your hand! Geez, even my hubby avoids greens. This said, how cool is it to have Kale find its way into a frozen fruit mix?
I couldn’t wait to try Wyman’s of Maine’s fruit and kale blend in a smoothie. Here is my recipe:1 1/2 cups of Wyman’s Strawberries, Blueberries, Cherries with Kale 1/4 cup of vanilla yogurt (I like to use peach, too!) 1-2 Tablespoons of Organic Cane Sugar (or try honey) Optional: 1 Tablespoon of Lecithin Granules Purified or Mineral Water
Place first three ingredients in blender, (If desired add Lecithin granules), then pour water in, to top of berries, and blend. If the smoothie is too thick to blend completely add more water; runny?, add more fruit.
Super easy to make but healthy and tasty. I love smoothies with breakfast or after a long stressful day. This berry, cherry & kale smoothie was great, but I will tell you that even after blending, there was a distinct texture with the kale. I didn’t mind this, but my hubby thought it was weird…….will I ever be able to get him to eat greens? 🙂
Kudos to Wyman’s of Maine for putting together an awesome blend. Wyman’s has also added frozen Cherries and Cranberries to their line, so be sure to check them out if you can find them in your area. It was a little difficult for me to find Wyman’s so I think I’m going to ask my local grocery why they don’t carry such a great product!
