Green Velvet Smoothie
Hemp seeds are one of the best, most concentrated sources of Omega 3s—better (and tastier) than flaxseeds. They make a great addition to this creamy smoothie. Look for both hempseeds and hemp milk at most any natural foods market.
Makes two 12-ounce servings
- 2 medium kale leaves, torn
- 1 medium banana
- 1/2 medium ripe avocado
- 2 cups vanilla nondairy milk (try almond or hemp milk)
- 2 tablespoons hemp seeds, optional (but highly recommended)
- Lemon juice, to taste
- Agave nectar, to taste
Combine the kale, banana, nondairy milk, and optional hemp seeds in a blender. Blend on high speed until completely smooth.
Divide between two 12-ounce tumblers and add a little lemon juice and agave nectar to taste. Drink at once at room temperature or add a cube or two of ice.
