Greens In a Glass

greens in a glassPlus protein. How’s that for efficiency? To make this liquefied superfood behemoth, I added unsweetened coconut milk, an organic banana, a dash of raw agave syrup, four heaping tablespoons of hemp protein powder, and loads of frozen kale to a blender and whipped the whole mess to a smooth, creamy consistency. Vitamins from the kale, protein from the hemp, potassium from the ‘nana, and medium chain fatty acids from the coconut milk make this vibrant smoothie a nutritional quick-fix when grad school application deadlines, standardized test dates, and the mid-week bartending grind loom large. A busy bartender mustn’t allow life to get in the way of his getting his greens and post-workout protein boost.
