Green Smoothie

I didn't know what to have for supper tonight but I wanted to use up the last bit of homemade almond milk I made yesterday so I Googled "Almond Milk Smoothies" and found a recipe called Homemade Cookie Dough: Green Smoothie.  Who wouldn't want to eat healthy cookie dough for supper?  I quickly looked at the ingredients and realized I had them all handy.  I played with it a bit and here is what I came up with.  I'm sipping on it now, by the way, and it's fantastic!

1 cup homemade (or store bought) almond milk
1/2 large banana
1 cup kale with stems removed
1/3 cup oats
1/4 cup almond butter
1-2 tbsp. coconut
2 pitted dates
1/4-1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla

Blend all together in a high powered blender until smooth.

I'm not sure what kind of cookie dough it's supposed to taste like but it's smooth and creamy and bursting with flavor.  Breakfast tomorrow?

  1. Hmm, cookie dough might be a stretch, but I'll try it tomorrow.
