As a preemptive trial for the green smoothie challenge I’m taking part in starting April 1, I’ve been experimenting with various green smoothies, but it’s largely been for breakfast, when my husband is already at work, and he was a little jealous. So tonight he got a green smoothie as part of dinner, and I got a little creative with various fruits that were laying around. Luckily, you can’t taste the kale in this one! Previous attempts tasted like blended salad, which was just awful.
Kale Blood Orange Green Smoothie
1 handful baby kale
1 c. cold filtered water
1/4 c. aloe juice
3/4 c. Trader Joe’s Green Plant juice
1 frozen banana
1 blood orange, peeled and sectioned
1 lime, peeled and cut in quarters
1 apple, cored, and cut into sections
Lots of fiber in this one! If you’re not a fan of “chewing” your smoothie (although you should make the motions with your mouth, I’m told, to aid in digestion), you can easily filter out the pulp.
