Raw kale and ginger blender smoothie:
This one is packed with immune-boosting nutrients, and is easily made in a blender!
Ingredients (all organic):
1 piece raw ginger, peeled and diced
1 apple, sliced
1 cup celery, chopped
1 kiwi, peeled and halved
½ avocado, flesh only
3 (unpacked) cups kale or spinach leaves
Juice of ½ lemon
16 ounces pure water
To make in a blender:
Add water, ginger, celery, kiwi, lemon juice, and greens to blender. Pulse until greens are chopped (10-20 pulses). Start blending on low and add rest of ingredients, one at a time, increasing speed as needed until the highest speed setting and blend for 1-3 minutes until liquid. Pour into your favorite cup (finished it’s about 25 ounces).
You can also make this in your favorite juicer or Magic Bullet.
Because this smoothie has healthy vegetarian fat and protein, it is a complete meal. I had it for lunch today and feel bright, energetic, and warm inside (thanks to that ginger)!
Enjoy! XOXO – Katy
