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)

1/4 banana

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.
