This smoothie manages to be sweet and creamy while still packing a respectable amount of greens into each serving. If your fruit is a little overripe, even better, and if you can manage to freeze it beforehand your smoothie will be more luxurious for it.
  • 4 small donut peaches (or 1 large regular peach), pitted and roughly chopped
  • 1 cup diced mango
  • 1 large banana, peeled
  • 3 large kale leaves, stems removed*
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 2 tablespoons raw almond butter
  • 1 cup water
  • ½ cup ice cubes
  1. Add all the ingredients except the ice cubes to the jar of a blender. Turn the blender up to the highest speed and blend until totally smooth.
  2. Drop in the ice cubes and blend a few moments more, until no chunks of ice remain.
*If you don't have a particularly powerful blender, use an additional cup of spinach in place of the kale.

Nut-Free Option: Use ¼ cup of hemp seeds instead of the almond butter.
