Recipe Directions

juice all ingredients except greens.

pour juice in a blender (mine isn’t a vitamix, i just have to blend longer) and blend GREENS till VERY green and smooth.

variations: use half of an orange instead of a lemon, stalks from swiss chard instead of celery

Pianissima's Thoughts

a tart drink, with all the fiber from the greens leftover. i find that green smoothies are a little too sweet for me and i don’t get much green “mileage” out of them. the play between the tart citrus and the sweet apple in this covers up the bitterness of the greens nicely. and a bonus is that it turns into a kind of frappe when you make it with spinach. ENJOY!
