Morning Apple Blaster Smoothie...
Not being much of a breakfast person smoothies have always been my go-to morning meal. In the past they’ve usually consisted of fruit, and soy milk, but over the past few months I’ve been leaning more and more towards the ‘Green Smoothies’ they’re delicious, and loaded with healthful nutrients, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. For a while there I was making ‘kitchen sink’ smoothies, meaning they usually consisted of at least a little of every kind of fruit and vegetable I had in the house. Lately however I’ve been favoring a more simple approach. I made this one the other morning and loved the result!
Morning Apple Blaster Smoothie
1 Organic Granny Smith Apple (if not organic remove peel)
1 Organic D’Anjou Pear (if not organic remove peel)
2-3 Small Leaves Kale
1/4 cup water Or Apple Juice (or enough to cover the blades of a vitamix, or more to thin if desired)
1 Packet Stevia (Optional)
- Blend fruit, kale, and water on high for 30 seconds to 1 minute until everything is smooth. Taste for sweetness and if it’s not sweet enough for your taste add Stevia.
Not at all a bad way to start your day. Especially one of those lovely warm summer mornings when you have some liesure time to just sit by the window and watch the world outside. Listen to some good music, read a good book... those are my favorite kind of mornings. Enjoy!
