Favorite Green Smoothie Recipe

In the spirit of making my word for 2014 visible and elevating my health, I wanted to share my favorite green smoothie recipe.  It’s beyond simple and requires just a few ingredients:

Green SmoothieIn a typical batch, we blend:

  • 2 large stems of Kale leaves
  • 2 large handfuls of spinach
  • 1 apple
  • 4 carrots
  • a small handful of grapes
  • 7-8 ice cubes
