Favorite Friday recipe for blending or juicing! Anytime I wake up feeling tired, I start my morning with a nutritious smoothie. It always feels good starting the day out healthy. What do you do to jump start your morning when feeling sluggish?
Rinse the greens; chop the cucumber and pear in halves; and peel the lemon.
If you have a Vitamix® or similar high-power blender, toss in all the ingredients and purée them. You’ll get a frothy, delicious juice with a beautiful bright-green hue. Add a few ice cubes if you wish.
Otherwise, run ingredients through a juicer. Put the kale and dandelion greens in first, followed directly by the cucumber or pear, which yield a high liquid and will help press the leafy greens through. Finish by adding the lemon. Stir and enjoy!
3 celery stalks
1 organic green Anjou pear
3 large kale leaves
big handful of dandelion greens (approximately 6–8 stalks chopped in half)
