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.  

Ingredients

  • 2 Cups chilled almond milk
  • 2 frozen overripe bananas
  • 1 Cup fresh kale
  • 1/2 Cup strawberries
  • 4 cardamom pods, crushed
  • 1/4 Teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions

Add ingredients to blender, cover tightly, and process until smooth.
