Green Smoothie

Kale is one of my very favorite foods. Not just because I find it to be delicious, but because it is so very healthy. There are days I actually crave kale and these are always great days for a smoothie. I pack mine with protein too to keep me full for hours.

2 cups almond milk

1 banana

1 handfull of blueberries, about 1/2 a cup

1 TBS chia seeds

1 handfull baby spinach, about 1/2 a cup

2 TBS raw almond butter

2 medjool dates, seeds removed

4 kale leaves, stems removed, I like purple kale

Place everything in a blender and blend until very smooth. I have an inexpensive blender and blend for about 90 seconds while upping the blend speed every ten seconds or so.

This smoothie can be made with water. Replace the 2 cups of almond milk with 2 cups of water and add a third date.
