Course: Breakfast + Brunch
Cuisine: Raw
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes
Servings: 2 large smoothies

Ingredients 

  • 1 large green apple sliced, about 2 ½ cups
  • 1 cup curly kale stems removed
  • 1 cup ice
  • ½ cup oat milk
  • ½ cup vegan yogurt
  • 2-3 medjool dates 30-45 grams, pitted
  • ½ tablespoon lemon juice juice of about ½ lemon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger optional

Instructions

  • Slice the green apple to remove the core and remove the large stems from the curly kale.
  • Then, add the green apple, kale, ice, oat milk, vegan yogurt, dates, lemon juice, and optional ginger to a blender.
  • Blend at a high speed until all the ingredients have been broken down and the smoothie is thick and smooth.
  • Serve and enjoy!

Notes

  • Leftover smoothies can be stored in a closed container in the fridge for up to 24 hours. It will naturally separate if it's left to sit so just stir to combine.
  • It's totally fine to leave the skins on green apples and adds a lot of nutrients to this smoothie.
  • Any plant-based milk can be subbed 1:1 for oat milk in this smoothie.
  • Medjool dates should be soft when adding to a smoothie. If they are too hard, just add them to a bowl of warm water to soak for 5 minutes before adding to the smoothie. Otherwise, they won't blend up well. Dates can be subbed 1:1 for 2 Tbsp of maple syrup or agave.
