Green Drinks!!!!

I realized recently that I've been making the same green drink recipe for over a year alternating the greens of course, but the same basic fruit apple, bananas and lemon. It's time for a change so here are some recipes that I will be making.

Kale & Apples by Chef Chelly
1 large bunch of kale
2 apples (gala or pink lady) My favorites!!
1/2 lemon with peel
1 cup water

Blend on high to liquefy and add ice just to prevent juice from getting too warm, you should not drink your juices freezing cold. Your body temperature is warm, don't shock your cells!

Strawberry Minty Kale by Chef Chelly
4 ripe pears
4-5 leaves of kale
1/2 bunch of mint
2 cups water
8 strawberries

Blend on high to liquefy add ice sparingly and enjoy!

Nutritiously Bitter from Victoria Boutenko "Green for Life"
Blend well:
5 leaves of kale
1/4 avocado
3 cloves garlic
1/4 cup lime juice
1 bell pepper
2 celery sticks
1/2 bunch of Italian parsley
2 cups water
Yields: 1 quart of smoothie

Enjoy your green smoothies on an empty stomach and enjoy!!

Simply Delightful by Chef Chelly

1 banana
1/2 lime w/peel
1 bunch of spinach
2-4 pink lady apples or your favorite(I used just two)
2 cups water

Liquefy lime in water, add apples to liquefy then spinach, banana and ice to cool slightly.
I was in heaven drinking this, and I'm sure you will be also!

Parsley Green by Raw Chef Chelly

1 bunch parsley
1 handful spinach
1 apple
1 kiwi, 2 peel or not that's the ???, it's up to you
1 banana
1 peach
fresh mint, optional
2 cups water
Yeilds: 64 oz, 2 quarts or 8 cups :)

Blend in Vita Mix to liquefy and enjoy!!!

I made the kale and apple green drink and it was great! I had never had raw kale before, so I didn't know what to expect, but I'm glad I tried it. Thank you for the recipes!
