Author Notes: I spend a lot of time convincing my husband to eat breakfast before work. This is one of his favorite smoothies. I first read about putting almond butter in a smoothie on Joy the Baker's blog. It adds protein and a nice, creamy texture. I started using frozen bananas, as a way to keep the smoothie cold and cut down on ice. Now I keep frozen bananas in my freezer at all times- for baking or smoothie emergencies. Hilarybee

Makes: two small smoothies

Ingredients

  • 1 apple, peeld and cored
  • 1 banana, frozen
  • 1 cup Vanilla Soy Milk (I use unsweetened Vanilla WestSoy)
  • 1 cup chopped kale (about two large leaves, stalks removed)
  • 1 tablespoon Almond Butter
  • 1 teaspoon Raw Honey (or more, if you like it sweet)
  • 2-3 Cubes of Ice

Directions

  1. Combine all of the ingredients in the pitcher of a blender. Pulse two or three times to get everything mixed up. Then blend for 20-30 seconds, or until the smoothie is creamy, with no chunks of ice or kale.
