GREEN POWER

PROTEIN SMOOTHIE

PREP TIME: 5 minutes

MAKES 4 servings

1 handful of fresh spinach

2 large kale leaves

2 large fresh strawberries, hulled and chopped

2 cups (480 ml) unsweetened almond milk

2 cups (480 ml) ice

½ cup (70 g) fresh raspberries

½ cup (75 g) unsweetened whey protein powder

Granulated low-carb sweetener of your choice (see Note)

  1. Place all of the ingredients, except the sweetener, in a high-powered blender and blend for 2 minutes, until smooth and creamy. Taste and add sweetener to your liking. (Note: If your blender isn’t a high-powdered one, finely chop the kale leaves and pulverize the almonds before adding them to the blender jar. You may need to blend longer to get a smooth texture.)
  2. Pour into four 12-ounce (350-ml) glasses and serve immediately.
