Beginner Smoothie 1

Ingredients

1

1⁄2
banana (frozen ahead if you remember to do it)

raw almonds
2 tablespoons

1⁄4 bunch

Yields:
servings

Instructions

Process all ingredients except for kale and cilantro until smooth and creamy. It will be like pudding, not a shake. (Add water while it's blending if you want to drink it.) When you're finished blending it, pour off half of it and save. Put the greens into the processor or blender with a little water. Process that with the remaining fruit smoothie. Note: You could process them all together, but some people have a hard time getting started on smoothies because they don’t find the greens palatable. By dividing the smoothie, you can drink the green one first and have the pudding-like one for "dessert." As your taste buds adjust, you are likely to develop a taste for more green.
