Classic Green Smoothie

Classic Green Smoothie

When a recent wellness visit at the doctor had us using more iron in Edie's diet, we turned to green smoothies. And what started as a concerted effort to get our little one her vitamins has now resulted in a conscious love of kale smoothies. I can't say I dislike any part of that sentence.

We all know that smoothies take minimal effort to prepare and that they end up tasting and looking delicious. And while making a vibrant green drink for your little, why not make some extra for yourself?! After all, we can all afford to have more greens!   

Classic Green Smoothie with Kale (serves 3)
Prep time - 5 minutes. No cooking time

1 ripe banana
1/2 cup of whole milk (you can also substitute with Greek yogurt)
1 tbsp of almond butter
1/4 cup of rolled oats
2 big stalks of kale (just the leaves)
3 ice cubes

Place everything in a blender and puree until smooth. Serve fresh!
