Everyone seems to be on the green smoothie bandwagon. I know they are really nutritious and people seem to enjoy them once they get past the initial "ew, you put kale in that smoothie" reaction. Even so, I was not exactly rushing to try out green smoothies. They just sounded, well, disgusting. But I figured I should give it a try. Well, finally I did. It wasn't horrible but I have to admit that I'm not quite on the green smoothie bandwagon. I tried several combos but nothing compares to my Carrot Apple Kale juice. Ew, you might think too..how does that sound any different from a green smoothie? It doesn't I admit but somehow making the greens into a juice makes for a smoother taste. I've tried making several vegetable/fruit juice combos this year but keep coming back to this old favorite:
- 2 medium sized apple, any sweet kind
- 3-4 medium sized carrots
- 2 large leaves of kale
The juice separates into interesting layers but I stir it up before I drink it. This drink 2-3 times a week, makes my face so soft and gives my immune system a real boost. It's a green miracle that just happens to taste good which to me is the real miracle!
