Energizing Green Smoothie
I like to think of this as a “beginners” green smoothie. Mildly sweet, and dairy-free but still with a creamy consistency from the cashews. If your blender won’t get them to a smooth consistency you can just leave them out and substitute a quarter of an avocado instead. The Chia seeds provide an extra 4 grams of fiber and a good dose of omega 3s.
1 cup kale, fibrous stem removed
1/2 cup water
1 TB Chia seeds (optional)
1/2 cup fruit (use white, yellow or green fruit if you want a gorgeous green color)
7-10 raw, unsalted cashews
Ice, about 1/2 cup
Put all ingredients in blender. Make sure lid is on tightly! Blend until smooth and creamy.
