Spinach-Berry-Kumato Smoothie

Sometimes you feel like you don't want to eat a bowl of salad, but there is an easier way to get those salad greens in ;-). Just blend them up in a smoothie. Here is one for those days. It has loads of spinach, good fat from almonds and protein from hemp hearts. It is sweetened just a little bit with the berries and the dates. 

For smoothie:
  • Organic spinach - 1/2 pound 
  • Mixed frozen berries - 2 big handfuls
  • Kumato - 2 
  • Raw almonds (soaked overnight) - 1/2 cup
  • Dates (soaked overnight) - 6
  • Lemon juice (freshly squeezed) - 2-3 Tbs

Toppings:
  • Raw hemp hearts - 3 Tbs 
  • Shredded coconut - 3-4 Tbs (optional)
Directions:
  • Add all smoothie ingredients along with 1 cup of filtered water and purée till nice and creamy. 
  • Add the toppings and serve. 
  • Servings: 3 medium or 2 large smoothies.
