I love making a green smoothie for a morning or afternoon pick-me-up and think they’re a great way to sneak extra fruits and vegetables into my diet.


  • 2 large handfuls fresh kale
  • 1 large handful fresh spinach
  • 1 apple or pear, chopped with seeds and stem removed
  • Juice of one lemon
  • 1/2 cucumber, chopped (I leave the skin on)
  • 1 celery stalk, chopped
  • Fresh ginger (to taste)
  • 1 cup cold water


  1. Place all ingredients in a high-powered blender, blend until smooth.
  2. Add water as needed until the smoothie reaches your preferred consistency.


A note about this smoothie: If you don’t have a high-powered blender, you may need to chop the fruits and veggies up very finely and blend it for quite a while. The texture will still likely not be very smooth, but the flavor should be the same.
