I adapted a traditional spinach-and-banana green smoothie to contain more super-healthy ingredients; you really can’t taste the spinach, kale, or flaxseed in this smoothie! If you don’t like or don’t have kale, you can just use two cups of spinach (although you really can’t taste the kale). Likewise, the flax seed is optional if you don’t have it. You can also use ice water instead of green tea if desired; I just use green tea for the added antioxidant benefits.
