Spinach/Kale Smoothie

If you have a kid that just won't eat his greens you must give this a try because mine just sucked this down and asked for more!!  Of course I have to call it the "Incredible Hulk Smoothie"!  Whatever works, right?

This is also one of my favorite drinks to have in the morning before my workout.  I drink this along side a couple of eggs and apple slices and I'm good to go!  Enjoy the simplicity and delicious taste of greens that don't taste like greens.
  • 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk, coconut milk, coconut water, or just water (you can do a combo)
  • 1 frozen or fresh banana
  • 2 to 3 big handfuls of spinach or kale or some of both
  • 3 to 4 ice cubes
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons of local honey or agave (for the kids if needed, not for you Paleo Challengers)
  1. Place all ingredients in that order into your blender or vitamixer if you have one.  If you don't have a vitamixer I highly recommend you get one.  It was the best investment for my health that I have ever made!
  2. Blend ingredients until smooth.  Try not to over blend them.
