A surprisingly delicious, detoxifying smoothie made with green apple, kale, cilantro and ginger.
1 granny smith apple (preferably organic), cut into big pieces or one pear
2 cups of kale (pull leaves from two stalks to make two cups) or 2 cups spinach
1 lime (juiced or remove the seeds and add the flesh, too) or one lemon
1 small handful of cilantro (pull the leaves from the stalks)
1/2 cup orange juice
2 teaspoons ginger (mine came from a jar but you can grate fresh ginger instead)
1/3 cup chopped frozen banana (entirely optional, add if you want a more creamy texture)
Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
Pour into a glass and serve with a straw.
Yields about 12 ounces, so it makes one large smoothie or two small.
