Based on the Super Green Power Smoothie, after making so many substitutions, I realized I had a whole new recipe. It’s super duper!
16 ounces green kale (We used Lacinato Dinosaur Kale)
2 cups water
2 ripe bananas, peeled
1 apple, cut in sections
1 bag (12 ounces) frozen strawberries
2 Tablespoons ground flax seeds
2 Tablespoons maca powder
2 Tablespoon cacao nibs
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup cashew cream
In a high-powered blender, pour in 1 cup water. Add kale leaves with the stems, a few at a time and blend until smooth.
With the blender covered and running on med-low speed, add in the fruits, then seeds and powders, followed by the peanut butter and cashew cream. Go to high-speed and blend until smooth. Makes about 5 cups.
This recipe makes about 60 ounces which can serve 2 or more. Shared by two, 30 ounces of this Super Duper Green Power Smoothie will keep you fueled and satisfied for many hours.
Note: A normal blender may be used but the ingredient will need to be well-chopped first. Also, more water may be necessary for blending. You will still have an energizing smoothie, but it may not be a smooth.
