Green Kale Lemonade

A green kale-based smoothie that is so easy to drink.  Sweet, tart and ultimately refreshing.  It is a brightening wake-up to any morning.

A handful of baby kale, half of a cucumber, lemon juice and a sweet crisp variety of apple come together easily into a simple, healthy drink.

Add more lemon juice for a stronger tart taste.  Add more water if you want it milder.  I think it’s important for a green drink to be easy and tasty in order for you to want to have it every day.  I made this batch as my husband was making coffee  this morning and I was drinking it down green goodness long before he had his first cup ready!

(He declined having green smoothie first.  I asked).
