  • 2 apples, cored, cut into chunks
  • 2 ripe pears, cored, cut into chunks
  • 1-2 cups water
  • 2 lemons or oranges, juiced
  • 1-2 inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled and sliced

  • 1 cup chopped green cabbage

Optional:

1-2 kiwi fruit

Place the apples, pears, water, and citrus into a blender with a sharp blade or a Vita-Mix and blend until smooth and creamy.

Add the ginger, kale, greens and cabbage and blend until very smooth. Taste it and if too “green” add a little more fruit to your taste. Add water for a thinner consistency.
