RECIPE: Superpower Smoothie

Difficulty Level: Easy

Servings: 1

Equipment: blender

1 large handful of roughly chopped kale (spinach or collards can be substituted, or a combination can be used)
1 frozen, peeled banana, chopped into large chunks
1 c. unsweetened coconut water (can be switched out for a different favorite liquid, i.e. almond milk)
2 Tbs. almond butter (or other favorite nut butter)
1 Tbs. ground flaxseeds
1/8 tsp. ground cinnamon
a few ice cubes (optional, for a colder beverage)

1. Place all ingredients into a blender. For a smooth blend, it's best to pour the coconut water in first.
2. Puree until completely uniform in color and all the bits of green are pulverized.
3. Serve immediately.
