A New Year, A New Smoothie

December came and went so fast for us. I can hardly believe that it's 2014. I'm not one to make new year's resolutions, but I do tend to eat lighter in January simply because after all the holiday indulgences I want to eat cleanly and simply.

Today I will share with you the latest smoothie I've been drinking. Surprisingly, one of my most popular posts was this one, a post about a smoothie I drank all the time when I was pregnant with Miles. This post was pinned, reposted, viewed, etc. more than any other post I've done.

I will always love making that chocolate smoothie, but I'm really enjoying this one lately, probably because it tastes really good and it's got kale in it making me feel really healthy. But, I promise you won't taste the kale. The pale green color of the smoothie is the only reminder that it's in there. Oh, and this smoothie is loaded with protein from the almond milk and almond butter. It's one tasty and healthy smoothie. Drink up.

Banana Almond Kale Smoothie

1 banana, sliced and frozen
2 tablespoons roasted, salted almond butter
3/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1/2 cup packed roughly chopped kale leaves (stem removed; about 1 large leaf)
2 teaspoons pure maple syrup

Place all ingredients in blender and blend until completely smooth. 

Serves 1
