HOLIDAY DETOX GREEN APPLE SMOOTHIE
1 banana (or half is plenty if you're watching sugar)
1-2 cups kale, stems removed
1 cup apple cider (no sugar added - just the real stuff)
1 cup water or ice
optional extras: flaxmeal, nuts (I used pecans), nut butter
dash of cinnamon
pomegranate seeds for topping
1. Blend all ingredients together until smooth. Use water for a juice-like texture and ice for a smoothie-like texture. Add in any extras you want for extra protein, fiber, or healthy fats.
2. Stir in a dash of cinnamon, top with pomegranate seeds, and enjoy!
The smoothie naturally separates a bit after it rests, so you may find that there is a layer of foam and kale-textured-stuff on the top. You can either stir to reincorporate it.
