Banana, Kale, and Strawberry Smoothie

There's so much more to this recipe than meets the eye! This smoothie tastes more like a decadent dessert than a healthy smoothie with the creamy texture the overripe bananas lend. The cardamom and cinnamon give a kick that rounds out the grassy taste that blended greens can sometimes have.

Banana Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
