This is a smoothie I made for myself this morning. Sometimes, I just want and need to get something into my system fast and without too much effort, so I will make smoothies! What I have in the fridge usually dictates what kind I will make. I always try to keep tetra packs of Almond Milk and cans of Coconut milk in my cupboard so I have a nutritious liquid to start with.
This Smoothie was surprisingly delicious!! You would never know there was a vegetable in it, lol. and it’s a good way to get some greens into your system!
I dare you to try it! he he!

Blender: put your liquids in a blender, add the kale, nuts and fruit and blend until liquefied.
