1 medium banana peeled

3/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond or coconut milk beverage (Less if you enjoy a thicker smoothie. More if you enjoy a thinner consistency)

1-2 kale leaves (stalk removed) or 1/2 cup baby spinach

5-10 pecans (optional: toasted for 20 minutes at 200 degrees)

1/4 teaspoon of Blue Lotus Chai Traditional Masala tea*

Optional: 1 small scoop of plant based protein powder or 1-2 oz silken tofu


Place all ingredients in high powered blender. Blend for 30 seconds. Pour into a glass and enjoy.

* If you are sensitive to caffeine, it’s best to consume this beverage earlier in the day as the Blue Lotus Chai does contain caffeine


Prep time: 5-10 minutes

First things first: I love chocolate. I love kale. And I consume them both regularly, but generally not at the same time (although, ask me about my chocolate, berry & kale smoothie!) I also love helping people find easy ways make their body, mind, and life better while also making eco-friendly choices that support the health of our planet.
