A slight variation on my favorite healthy breakfast. An organic green smoothie with the star of fall produce, the apple! Trader Joe’s now sells bags of cut and washed kale which makes this smoothie a breeze to whip up in the morning or you can buy frozen kale at Whole Foods. This is the prefect breakfast for your morning commute.
Organic Fall Green Smoothie
1 cup organic cucumber, chopped (about half of an English cucumber with the skin on)
1 ripe organic avocado
2 cups organic apples, chopped (skins on)
2 cups organic kale, chopped and tightly packed (washed and dried)
1 cup organic lemonade (or 1 cup fresh squeezed lemons and oranges)
1/2 cup of ice
Puree in a blender until very smooth and bright green. Make sure to blend well as chunks of kale are not so appealing. We like to drink ours with a straw.
