Yum it up!!! If you haven't read my previous post about Juicing vs. Blended Smoothies, you should read it for some context when trying this recipe. This is one of my favorite healthy recipes-so simple and delicious, anyone can do it. All you need is a few minutes and a good blender. If you have a high powered blender like a Vitamix, all the better. If not, use what you have and remember, don't strain the juice after your process it. You want to retain as much of the fiber from the fruits and vegetables as possible. Make enough for a few days and sip between meals for a healthy snack to stave of hunger and get vital nutrients your body needs. Enjoy!
2 cups kale with stems (any variety)
1 cup frozen pineapple chunks
3 cups coconut water (I buy in bulk at Costcos)
1 inch fresh unpeeled ginger
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1 whole orange peeled and cut in 1/2
Put all ingredients in the blender and blend on high for 2-3 minutes liquid and no chunks of fruit or vegetables remain. Substitutions are many-try with spinach and chard greens or frozen mango chunks instead of pineapples. I know you will enjoy this one as much as I do.
