Green smoothies are a staple of my diet. Everyone in my family starts off their day with a green drink of some sort as part of the healthiest breakfast possible. Green drinks are a super easy way to get more green veggies into your body along with adding a healthy dose of fiber and antioxidant vitamins. Use organic ingredients whenever possible to avoid pesticide residue and get the most nutrient dense produce possible.
For the best taste and textured green drink, use a high speed blender. I use the Blendtec blender. It’s a 3 horse power blender and makes the BEST vegetable smoothies ever.
- 1 1/2 Cups baby kale
- 1 Cup coconut water
- Juice from 1/2 of a lemon plus some of the lemon peel (if organic)
- 1 Green apple, cored
- 1 piece of ginger
- 1 carrot, peeled
- 1 stalk celery
- 4 Ice cubes
Place all of the ingredients in your blender, process on whole juice setting and enjoy!
