The green smoothie is gaining a ton of attention lately. And it should! This is, by far, one of my favorite drinks because it’s super-easy to make, super-cheap and it’s packed with loads of sunshine and love 🙂
3 Organic Kale Leaves
2 Small Organic Apples or 1 Large Organic Apple (go with a sweeter variety like Red Delicious)
4 Ice Cubes
1 Organic Banana
Wash all fruits and veggies. Break your banana into 2 pieces and add to your blender. Core and slice the apple and add it to your blender. Remove the stem from the kale leaves and add the leaves to the blender. Add in the ice cubes and the water. Cover your blender and use your blender settings to create a smoothie.
This usually makes about 24oz of smoothie which I drink within 30 minutes. Feel free to adapt the recipe above to include your favorite ingredients. If the taste is too bitter, use a little less kale, or switch to a “lighter” tasting green like romaine.
