Green Smoothies

Here is a simple recipe that takes about 5-10 mins from start to finish, is ridiculously healthy, is chalked full of pure goodness, and tastes great.

Kale, collard greens, swiss chard, etc are all extremely good for you, and this is a great way to get in some crucial servings (and RAW servings, which is even better!) of these leafy greens with very little effort.
Makes 2 smoothies, apx 500-600ml each...cut recipe in half for a single smoothie.

What you'll need:

-3 handfulls of greens (a mixture of different types of kale, collard, chard, dandelion, etc - whatever is on sale) so it fills about half a blender when it's roughly torn up and bunched down.

-1 avocado, peeled and cored

-1 banana, peeled

-1 apple, cored

-1-2 other portions of fruit (plum, peach, kiwi, pineapple, melon, pear, mango, etc - whatever looks good or is on sale)

-1 lemon, without peel

-a tsp or so of honey (raw honey is best)

-a bit of ginger, without peel (about the size of a dime)

Roughly tear up your greens and put them in the bottom (half) of the blender, and the put everything else on top. Pour in cold water until it reaches the top of the greens. Blend for a good 3-5 mins so it gets nice and smooth.

(You may have to pulse the blender a few times to get everything blending, and you can always add a bit more water if need be as well)

I blend mine the night before and just keep it in the fridge so they're ready to go in the morning.
