Ingredients

  • 2 cups kale (4.7 oz.)
  • 1 banana
  • 2 tbsp. hemp seeds
  • 1 tbsp. peanut butter
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 2 cups ice
  • 1 cup almond or cashew milk
  • 2 tbsp. cacao powder
  • 1 scoop Vega vanilla protein powder

Instructions

  • Place the kale and banana in a blender (I use a NutriBullet), then add the hemp seeds and peanut butter. To avoid them sticking to the sides of the blender, aim the hemp seeds and peanut butter toward the center.
  • Add the ice & liquids and blend briefly until ingredients are combined.
  • Add powders, aiming for the center, and turn the blender up slowly so that the powders blend instead of flying everywhere. Once combined, blend at high speed until smooth.
  • Pour into glasses and serve.
