Happy Monday! It’s my first official week back in my space, and I’ve got to say, it feels as though I’m saying hello to a long lost friend. As promised, today I’m officially re-launching. Now that the weather is finally heating up, I’m celebrating by sharing a new smoothie recipe every day this week. I’m also hosting a welcome back giveaway for a $50 gift card to Earth Fare.
Monday’s have long since been my least favorite day of the week. After a weekend of relaxing and unwinding, it can be hard to get back into the swing of the things. This first smoothie will fix that. Mean Green Monday packs a powerful punch that will give you the energy you need to get through the day. I like to drink this smoothie early in the morning. It's light, filling and gives me everything I need to make it through Monday. This is also a great breakfast juice.
7-8 kale leaves
1 inch of ginger
1 cup of orange juice
As with all smoothies, it’s important that you properly wash all your ingredients. Kale is especially difficult to clean, so you may want to soak them for 10-15 minutes to ensure that you've removed all the dirt. Toss everything in the blender. (Note: I like to add ice for a more refreshing drink.) Blend well. Serve in glass with plenty of ice. Enjoy!
