Nutrition-wise, this is packed with antioxidants from the green tea, fiber and vitamins A, K, and C from the kale, mango and almonds, and there is also a good amount of calcium, iron, manganese and protein.
One glass in the morning another mid-day will get me through to dinner time.
For two servings:
-3 large leaves of Russian or Tuscan kale, ribs discarded and leaves roughly torn
-1/2 ripe mango, peeled and diced
-1/2 ripe banana
-3 T raw almonds, preferably soaked in water overnight
-1 heaping teaspoon matcha powder
-1/4 cup low fat yogurt
-enough almond, soy, or cow's milk or orange juice to get everything moving in the blender
Put everything in the blender and process on high speed until the almonds are completely pulverized and everything is smooth.
