green smoothie

I have recently been starting my day with a tall glass of water with a squeeze of lemon or lime and this smoothie; I'm officially a smoothie convert.  This mix is really satisfying and it can be used as a starting point for what flavors you like and have at the moment (vanilla, cocoa, peanut butter, berries...), but the frozen banana is necessary; it gives this smoothie a creamy texture, sweetens the drink, and hides any green flavor



for one:

1/2 frozen banana
large handful of kale or spinach
4 roasted almonds
2 T ground flaxseed
3 strawberries
3 ice cubes
generous shake of cinnamon
1 c milk (I use unsweetened silk soymilk)
small piece of ginger
squeeze of lemon

combine all ingredients and blend until smooth and creamy

yummm.
