  • 4 to 5 leaves kale without center rib – about 3 ½ cups (Curly kale is my favorite)
  • 3/4 cup vanilla soy milk Can be replaced with any non-dairy milk or water
  • 1/3 heaping cup raw cashews
  • 2 Tablespoons flaxseed
  • 3 bananas broken into chunks and frozen
  • 6 ice cubes


  • Blend kale and vanilla soy milk in blender until completely smooth. (You may need to stop the blender and stir for complete blending.)
  • Grind the cashews and flax seed in a coffee grinder until they become a smooth meal.
  • Add the frozen bananas, cashews and flax meal to the blender. Blend.
  • After it is fully blended, add the ice cubes and blend to desired consistency.
  • Pour into two glasses & serve!
