My Morning Smoothie

Thursday, January 24th, 2013

This smoothie is inspired by one I had at Whole Foods called “the kalelious”.  It was so good and refreshing but to make it is time consuming.  The Whole foods version juices the apples, lemon and ginger, and then mixes it with the rest of the ingredients.  I do love to juice but I am a busy girl who work 9 to 5 and do not have time to juice and blend every morning.  So in my version you just throw everything in the blender and you’re out the door.


½ cup water

Juice of 1 lemon

1 cup of pineapple fresh or frozen

½ banana (I use a frozen banana)

1 granny smith apple

Ginger- (I use a about ¼ inch)

2 cups of spinach

Couple leaves of kale

Blend all the ingredients together.

To chill, add as many ice cubes desired after it’s blended.  Enjoy!
