When most people think of an appetizing smoothie, the color green doesn't come to mind. In fact, if it does come to mind people are usually imagining adjectives that stray very far from the meaning of the word appetizing.
I'm hoping that this smoothie will change those people's minds. Don't be scared by the multiple leafy-green ingredients; this smoothie is light, smooth, and has a naturally sweet taste. Not to mention that it's full of nutrients and natural protein. Give it a try and let me know if it changes your view on green drinks!
FYI: I use all organic ingredients to help prevent the ingestion of nasty chemicals and GMOs. This isn't necessary, but it is suggested.
3 full leaves chard (or 2 leaves kale), including stem
¾ cup spinach
2’’ slice of cucumber
½’’ slice lemon, rind cut off
1’’ fresh ginger root
½ gala apple (or other sweet variety)
¼ cup almond milk
1½ - 2 cups water (use enough for desired consistency)
4-6 ice cubes
1. Combine ingredients in blender
