Imagine a luxuriously creamy green smoothie that tastes like a dessert but is made with nutritious foods like peanut butter, bananas, and kale. And all you need are five simple ingredients to make this dairy-free vegan beverage!
Special diet gluten-free, oil-free, soy-free option, vegan
Add the non-dairy milk, dates, and chopped kale to your high-speed blender. Place the lid on and blend until the greens are partially broken down.
Next add the peanut butter and frozen banana. Place the lid on and blend again until completely smooth, using the tamper, as needed. (The tamper is the stick that comes with your blender that assists with pushing ingredients toward the blade.)
Pour in a glass and enjoy right away.
Substitutions:This recipe is highly adaptable to suit your preferences and dietary needs. The only ingredient I suggest making sure you use is the frozen banana, but even that can be substituted or a different fruit, if you like.
Non-dairy milk options include soy, coconut, almond, oat, and rice.
Sweetener options include different types of dates, pure maple syrup, brown rice syrup, and agave nectar.
Greens options include spinach, chard, and collards.
