Warrior Smoothie

On a recent trip to visit our peeps in SoCal, we stopped by a superfood bar for a quick pick-me-up with a "Warrior" smoothie. Laden with nutritious greens and sweetened with dates, it was a refreshing way to reboot the system that really did make me feel more like a warrior. Whenever the head begins to get cloudy, or the body begins to feel sluggish, the Warrior is a great way to cleanse. So, now I've been making these at home.

Warrior Smoothie

4 cups kale or spinach
1 cup vanilla almond milk
1 apple (cored)
1 frozen banana
8 dates
1 tablespoon almond butter

*You may add whey powder for protein boost if desired.

Pour the liquid in the blender, then add the greens. Place remaining ingredients on top. Turn on the lowest speed first, then gradually increase to top speed until smooth and frothy. Thicken with ice or dilute with water as needed.

A fabulous way to use up those greens past their prime in the fridge!
