Another day, another battle about Mr. Radar’s breakfast. He still prefers his breakfast in liquid form–often drinking flavored Kefir from Trader Joe’s. I have no problem with this, per se, but I’d rather make him a homemade smoothie. I wanted to incorporate kale, but I still wanted it to taste like a creamy smoothie. So I threw in a banana, an apple, along with the soy milk and almond butter that I always put in smoothie. The resultant smoothie has a gentle banana flavor, with a hint of almond and vanilla.
Green Power Smoothie
Yields two small smoothies
1 apple, peeled and cored
1 banana, frozen is best, fresh is fine too

1 cup Vanilla Soy Milk (I use Unsweetened Vanilla by WestSoy)
1 tablespoon Almond Butter
1 teaspoon of Raw Honey
Handful of Ice
(1) Combine all ingredients in a blender. Pulse for a few moments to mix everything up, then blend on high for 20-30 seconds.
