Super Green Salad Smoothie

I rarely share recipes for smoothies for two reasons, a) I rarely make the same smoothie twice since I typically just throw whatever is in my fridge into my vitamix, and b) because I created a smoothie guide to help you mix and match your way to your own superfood smoothies!

That said, this blend knocked my socks off the first time I made it, and after a little tinkering, I figured I’d share it.

1-2 medjool dates, pitted (or other sweetener)*
3-4 stalks of curly kale
¼ cup old fashioned oats
1 handful raw almonds soaked
3-4 broccoli florets (chopped)**
1 stalk carrot (chopped)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 frozen banana
½ teaspoon wheat grass powder or chlorella (optional)
4 cubes of ice
1 cup water or plant-based milk

* blending tip: if you soak the almonds and dates in water for 1 hour it will make blending easier, especially if you don't have a high-powered blender.

** blending tip: if you don't have a high-power blender, chop the broccoli and carrots into small pieces.
