20130417-201212.jpgLast Monday, Scott and I had a conference to attend in Orlando. We hopped over to the Winter Park area and visited Audubon Park Community Market. This was a small market in a courtyard, but was HIGHLY attended. The vendors truly showcased local ingredients and products. I convinced Scott to order a green smoothie from an a la carte smoothie menu. We chose almond milk, kale, blueberries, and bananas (see top picture of empty cup). My skeptical husband was pleasantly surprised by how much he liked it. When we returned home, I made the same smoothie but replaced it with some of the frozen strawberries I had stocked away in my freezer.  (see bottom picture of full glass before I drank it all gone!) I do think I like the blueberries better, but the strawberries work well too. Here is what I did:

  • 2 kale leaves pulled off stem

  • 1 cup strawberries

  • 1 1/2 bananas

  • 12 oz unsweetened almond milk

Place all ingredients into a blender and mix. This make about 2 large smoothies.
