When you mix a lot of colors, you end up with brown. And that's exactly what happened with today's smoothie. It turned a sickly brownish-green. I had odds and ends in my fridge that needed to be used, so I threw them all together. It still tasted terrific, though, so I'm not complaining. If you can get past the color, you'll dig the flavors.
This recipe makes 2 large smoohies.
- 1 huge handful of kale
- 1 carrot
- 1/2 honeycrisp apple
- 1/2 ripe banana (if you like a really banana-y smoothie, use a whole one)
- half a handful of blueberries
- handful of raspberries
- 1/4 cup POM pomegranate-cranberry juice
- 2-3 TB orange juice
