The baby kale makes for a sweeter, softer texture that matches the smoothness of the shake overall.
3 small frozen bananas (about 2 cups)
1 cup unsweetened plant milk
1 cup cold water
3T cocoa powder (I use a fairly traded, Dutch -processed brand)
1T cashew butter
1 cup loose baby kale
1/2t vanilla extract
Sweeten to taste with dates, agave nectar, maple syrup, or stevia.
Optional: 1t powdered maca. Trade the kale for a little arugula and some chili for a spicy chocolate version.
Blend everything together until smooth and creamy. Sweeten to taste and enjoy!
