Almond Kale Pesto

So, this recipe is amazing!!! I did adapt it to make it paleo, but I have to give some street cred to my roomie, Justin, for finding this recipe. They first time he made it, it semi blew my mind. I couldn’t literally eat it by the spoonful…aaaand I usually do. Whoops. Sorry, I’m not sorry.
