“I DON’T LIKE SALAD ENOUGH, SO I’LL DRINK THIS INSTEAD” SMOOTHIE

Makes about 2 (8-ounce) servings

Here’s a basic, great-way-to-start-your-day smoothie. The kale, spinach, celery, and cucumber offer the nutritional equivalent of jamming a salad into your cup, but the result doesn’t taste too veggie-y because the fruit’s sweetness counteracts the bitterness of the leafy greens. If you want a little more sweetness, boost the honey level. As for the berries, I like to buy them fresh and freeze them myself, but you can also grab them from the freezer section; frozen organic fruit is flash-frozen at its peak freshness, so it retains its vitamin content. Bon matin!

½ cup frozen blueberries

¼ cup raspberries

1 handful kale

2 big handfuls spinach

½ frozen banana (optional)

1 large rib celery

½ cucumber

½ thumb’s worth fresh ginger

1 cup unsweetened almond milk, plus more if your smoothie gets too thick!

Dash of honey, or more to taste.

 

Blend all that shiz together and enjoy!
