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).
