Gone Green Smoothie: 1 Juice, 2 Recipes

Kale, Spinach, Banana Smoothie


This week I'm serving up a delicious (and healthy!) green juice that you can have two ways-- drink it one way one day, then switch it up for the next!

Go Green Smoothie
Ingredients: 
1/2 bag of Kale, no stems/ribs (I get bags of pre-chopped kale from Trader Joe's)
1/2 bag Spinach
2 kiwis, peeled
4 Apples (I used Fuji, but you can use Gala or Green as well)
1 Lemon, peeled if juicing

Directions:
Put all fruits and veggies through juicer as per your juicer's instructions. Makes approx. 4 servings.

Ingredients: 
- 1 cup+ of green juice from above
- 1 Banana (the more ripe the better!)
- ~1 cup Ice
- 1 tablespoon Chia Seeds
- Squirt of honey

Directions:
Combine juice and ingredients in blender; blend until smooth. For added smoothie-ness, add 2-3 tablespoons of Greek yogurt. 

A Good Hue Green Juice

Enjoy!

    1. Hi K! I have a NutriBullet (blender) and the Bella High-Powered Juicer, both I picked up at Kohls on sale. After using the juicer for several months, I do wish I had splurged a bit more and purchased a masticating or slow-pressed juicer-- I get a ton of leftover pulp and have to run it through the juicer a couple of times to try to pull out as much juice as possible.

  2. Hi Amanda, your blog caught my eye and I enjoy reading along, so I nominated you for a Liebster Award, which is just a fun way to connect with other bloggers and answer questions to get to know one another. If you’re interested, check out my post:
