Lemony Green Smoothie Recipe

IMG_7192

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.

*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?
