Ingredients:

  • 1 c. water
  • 1 green apple, cored
  • 1 kiwi, peeled
  • 2 green kale leaves
  • 1 small handful fresh cilantro, washed
  • 2 stalks celery
  • 2” piece fresh ginger, peeled
  • crushed ice, as desired

Directions:

Add ingredients to blender container in the order recommended for the type of blender you are using (see intro at the beginning of this section).

For high-powered blenders, make sure the machine is on the lowest speed setting before you begin. Then, slowly increase the speed to the highest setting. (If your machine has a pre-programmed smoothie option, use that instead).

For regular blenders, use different speeds and the pulse button to thoroughly combine the ingredients. Blend for 1 - 2 minutes or until the ingredients are completely smooth.
