Kale-Apple Smoothie

Kale-Apple Smoothie

Serves 1           Hands-On Time: 05m             Total Time: 05m
3/4  cup  chopped kale, ribs and thick stems removed
1  small stalk celery, chopped
1/2  banana
1/2  cup  apple juice
1/2  cup  ice
1  tablespoon  fresh lemon juice

1. Place the kale, celery, banana, apple juice, ice, and lemon juice in a blender.
2. Blend until smooth and frothy.
Even if you’re not a fan of kale, this smoothie is worth a try: The apple juice and banana mask the vegetable flavors so effectively, you can use a full cup of the vitamin-rich leafy green.
Margaret’s Note: Check out the comments section on the web.  Several folks mentioned using just a whole apple or two rather than the juice and some other simple modifications like adding yogurt or strawberries or mango.  This is definitely a play with it and have fun recipe that even kiddos will like.  Great if you’re in the picky-eater stage!
