Best Green Smoothie Ever

I usually don’t post any recipes on here because I’ll be honest, I don’t know how to cook anything except broccoli and mac and cheese.  However, I do know how to make a smoothie, and I just made the BEST green smoothie this morning. It is inspiring me to write this post.  I had not tried this combo before.  It is so good I literally think I am going to have a second one after I finish typing this.


1/2 cup Almond milk (I usually use unsweetened vanilla, but this morning I tried Silk Dark Chocolate Almond Milk and it was SO good. This does have more calories and sugar than the unsweetened vanilla though so I will probably only use it occasionally.)

3-4 organic dates – pitted, just take the seed out (the more you use, the sweeter the taste – I get mine at Whole Foods in the produce section)

1 frozen banana – take the peel off before you freeze it

1.5 cap fulls of vanilla extract

2 ice cubes

1 cup frozen kale


Put in the blender and blend.  Enjoy!

  1. Thanks for sharing! I’ve been waiting for you to post more about health & beauty! So amazing to see this!
    Did you eat your smoothie with a spoon? It looks quite thick

  2. Hi Maria. Oh good. Then I will have to post more stuff like this. This one tastes really good – like dessert but isn’t as healthy as some of my others. I’ll share those too. This one has a lot of sugar from the dates, banana and chocolate almond milk. But I think worth it. I do use a spoon but you can play with the consistency i.e. less ice/more almond milk if you’d rather use a straw 🙂

  3. I need to try this! Just got a nutribullet and still haven’t mastered using kale with it yet. Good idea to get frozen kale though— I never use the fresh kale quick enough and it goes bad!
