Green Spiced Smoothie


2 cups kale, stems removed (if you use spinach, no need to remove stems)

1 cup almond milk

3/4 cup filtered water, or additional almond milk if you prefer

2 sliced and frozen bananas

1 thin slice fresh ginger (I throw it in the blender un-peeled. You could also grate it first, enough to equal about 1/2 teaspoon, or more if you like it with a kick!)

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

2 pinches each of ground cardamom, cloves, and nutmeg

dash freshly ground pepper

6 ice cubes

Put everything in the blender and blend until smooth.
