It’s another really warm day in Davis; perfect for a cool green smoothie! My roommate bought a shitload of kale and told me to help myself with it because it’s more kale than she could probably eat in her whole life so I based it on that and whatever else I found in my fridge.
Makes 1 giant smoothie or two normal-sized ones.
~6 oz. lemonade (or, if you prefer, straight lemon juice with the sweetener of your choice/ homemade lemonade)
~2 oz. water
1 frozen banana*
1 fresh banana*
~1 1/2 cups kale (as much as you can fit in blender)
~3/4 cup spinach (as much as you can fit in blender)
Put the liquids in the blender first, then add the bananas.
Cram as much greenery as you want/can into the blender.
Blend until volume of leaves has decreased, then add ice cubes.
Blend again until ice is crushed and everything is thoroughly mixed. Serve and enjoy!
*Banana note: You could totally use 2 fresh bananas or 2 frozen bananas, you would just need to adjust the amount of ice you add. More frozen banana = less ice added, more fresh banana = more ice added, ya dig?
