handful- can you believe it was only 99 cents!?
"My beloved green monster and me"
1 big handful of kale, steamed and run under cold water
2 dates, pitted
3/4 c almond milk (or more, taste- this comes out pretty thick)
4 ice cubes
1/2 tsp chia seeds
1/2 tsp flax seeds
1/2 tsp almond meal
1 Tbs maple syrup
1. Blend everything really well. My blender did a great job- there are only a few little green flecks of kale left.
2. Enjoy for breakfast or as a light dinner!
This smoothie isn't super-sweet but you can make it sweeter by... adding more sweetener:) Feel free to improvise on this. A ripe banana would be a yummy substitute for the avocado- we just used our ripe bananas for banana bread this morning so that wasn't an option.
