Raspberry Lemonade Green Smoothie


Watch out! This smoothie is TART! I was craving something clean and tart this morning and this smoothie is a REAL eye opener. You can always sweeten it up to your taste by blending in pitted dates or raisins.

1 cup frozen raspberries
3/4 cup water or more, depending on desired thickness
2 Tablespoons flax seeds, ground
1 Tablespoon sesame seeds
Kale, 4 leaves, stalks removed
1/2 fresh lemon, peeled
2 prunes, pitted and soaked, or 2 Tablespoons REAL prune butter
Optional: more pitted prunes or dates for desired sweetness.

In a blender, add the raspberries and water. Blend until smooth. Pulse frozen berries a few times in the water before blending. Blend in the seeds. Add one kale leaf at a time and blend well. If you are not used to green smoothies start with one or twp leaves. Blend in the lemon. Serves 1.
