Raw Kale Smoothie

If you haven’t had greens in your smoothie before, then I could see how it might sound strange or unappealing. But it is GREAT! And great for you as well. My sister ordered her own green concoction the other day and it was so delicious that I ran out and bought all the ingredients myself. I’ve made it almost every day this week and notice immediately that it gives me a good boost when I’m feeling “off” at all. Give it a try! You’ll be surprised.

Ingredients:
Big handful raw kale, rinsed
1 cup almond milk (I use unsweetened original, but vanilla is good too!)
1 banana
1/2 teaspoon chia seeds
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon or nutmeg
Small handful raw almonds
Small scoop of protein (I used vanilla whey protein powder)

I’ve included other items like goji berries and dates for example. Basically anything that has good nutritional value I’m throwing in there. Using just the main ingredients (kale, almond milk and banana) is just as delicious…so you could always start there and experiment as you go.

Add all the ingredients together and blend away!
