Would you believe me if I told you that my first green smoothie ever was at Whole Foods? Funny enough, that was also my first time ever at Whole Foods, 8 years ago! It felt like paradise.
Hence, I decided to order a Kale smoothie, 1. Because I LOVE smoothies and 2. Because green smoothies seemed like a cool thing -and they are! Long story-short, I liked it so much that I decided to give it a try at home until I would find the same tasty and citrous-y flavor. And I did! 8 years later, I still cannot get over it and all of Kale’a benefits.
This recipe serves for 2- make sure to do it in a blender so you keep all the good stuff, including the fiber.
1. One glass of apple juice (not concentrate) or a green apple -I prefer the juice.
2. One large banana
3. One squeezed lime -you may also peel it and put it whole
4. 2-3 long kale leaves
5. A good handful of spinach
6. 4-6 ice cubes
