Peppermint Plum Green Tea Smoothie

Ingredients:

1 plum

2 pitted Medjool dates

Fresh peppermint

3-4 ice cubes

1 C cold water

Directions:

Add the kale and spinach to your blender, then add the matcha powder and hemp protein followed by the fruit, ice, and water.  Blend until smooth and enjoy!
