Gosh Darn Good Green Smoothie

Submitted by: PUDGYJACK

Introduction

I drink this every day for breakfast and throughout the work day. A great, refreshing way to start the day. The fruits seriously overpower the kale taste..

Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    Banana, fresh, 1 medium (7" to 7-7/8" long)
    Apples, fresh, 2 medium (2-3/4" dia)
    Cucumber (with peel), about 1/3 - 1/2 average sized
    Baby Carrots, raw, 10 medium (or 2 whole medium carrots)
    Kale, 2 cup, raw, chopped
    Water, tap, 3 cup (24 fl oz)
    Apple juice, unsweetened, 2 cups

Directions

In a high-speed blender (Vita-mix or Blendtech works great) please all ingredients listed (except apple juice) in order listed.

Blend on low just until incorperated, then move to high and blend of about 1 minute.

Makes about 64 oz. Divide into 4 servings and stir in Apple juice to taste.

If you do not have a high-speed blender you will need to spend a little extra time chopping all ingredients into small pieces. You may also need to cut the reciepe in half to fit into your blender.

Optional: I find adding fresh pineapple, mango, or papaya adds a great taste, and some variety.
