I've been on a collard green kick lately, making salads and other meals using them. Growing up we always had them cooked as "greens" my Granmda would make...they were so good, but who knew they were just as delicious raw? Today was my first crack at a smoothie using these tender and mild greens. It was delicious!
Here's what you'll need:
3 small collard leaves (about 2 cups)
1 medjool date, pitted
1 tbsp cacao powder
1 rounded scoop protein powder (I used Orgain Vanilla Bean)
1/2 ripe banana (I used a frozen one to make the smoothie cold ❄️☺️❄️)
1/2 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
1/2 cup water 💦
Place all ingredients in the blender, and mix until smooth...the date may take a little longer to break up, but little chunks are okay and pretty tasty if you like a smoothie with some bite 😃
