Taste This: Banana Almond Green Smoothie
If you like bananas and almonds you will love this cool, creamy green smoothie.
As you’ll see in the recipe, this smoothie gets its green color from a heaping helping of raw kale. Kale is a hearty, leafy green chock full of fiber, calcium, magnesium and more than a day’s worth of vitamins A, C and K. It’s also a great source of lutein, which is important for eye health.
If you’re still thinking, yeah but it’s green?! Go out on a limb just this once. With the banana almond flavor leading the way, you’ll learn to love the green color.
