Bennett’s Kale, Date, and Almond Smoothie

BennettInfoboxWhen Caputo questions Bennet what he’s drinking, Bennet says it’s a combination of kale, dates, and almond.

We had this for breakfast this morning, since it’s really healthy; a great way to start off the day!

First just the almond milk, dates, and almond butter are blended together, and then once smooth the rest is added and blended: whey protein powder, kale leaves, ground ginger, salt, and ice cubes.

That’s it!

Taste: 9/10

I was surprised at how good this actually was.  I get a little hesitant with “health” smoothies, or really any smoothies that contain greens, but I enjoyed this a lot!  It helps that the almond flavor really covered up the kale taste.

It should be noted, though, that my husband did the grocery shopping this week and I ended up with regular almond milk instead of unsweetened, which I’m sure helped the taste in some way.

Difficulty: Easy

All you need is a blender!20190216_085659

Cost: Average/Pricey

You’ll need almond milk, dates, almond butter, kale, and ground ginger, though you may already have some of these.  The whey protein powder is optional, but would increase cost to “Pricey.”
