Green Energy Drink

It's Kale Season!

So you know this wonderful green leafy veggie is good for you. What to do with it?  Here is a quick, delicious green drink that even the kids might enjoy!  (I admit, my inspiration from this one comes directly from a veggie drink by Dr. Oz....but this is a much simpler and I believe, tastier version). Enjoy with breakfast or as an antioxidant-rich afternoon pick-me-up.
2-3 fresh kale leaves, washed, chopped, stalks/stems removed
1/2 apple*, washed, skin on, chopped (*honeycrisp variety works well due to its lovely sweetness)
Juice of 1/2 a lemon
1 cup water
Blend all ingredients on high until smooth. Enjoy immediately - drink in the green energy!
Total Prep Time:
5 minutes
