Equipment

  • Blender

Ingredients

  • 1 cup baby kale or spinach
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen dark sweet cherries
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon plus a little more for sprinkling
  • Toppings: bee pollen sliced almonds, shredded coconut, cacao nibs

Instructions

  • Place kale, Greek yogurt, frozen cherries, almond butter, and cinnamon into a blender. Blend until smooth. You may need to stop the blender and scrape down the sides. If absolutely necessary, add a little water if your blender is having trouble. The mixture is supposed to be thick and spoonable.
  • Transfer to a shallow bowl. Garnish with desired toppings. Eat immediately.

Notes

One thing to keep in mind when you're blending is that because this has virtually no liquid, it will be on the thick side. You may need to stop and scrape down the sides of your blender or add a little extra liquid to get the blades moving. If you have a high-speed blender it will probably have less trouble. The longer you blend, the thinner the smoothie will be so go easy on the liquid if you do decide to add a tiny bit more.
