Today I mixed a bunch of kale leaves (take the green off the stems and don’t put the thick stems in your smoothie), a large handful of young spinach leaves, about a cup of coconut water,1/2 a pineapple and a frozen banana in the blender. (I used Matt’s Montel Williams blender. It’s pretty heavy duty, but I have made a similar smoothie in my regular Osterizer blender as well). Both my husband and I thought it tasted pretty good.
Yesterday I used our juicer. We have a Breville Juice Fountain. My favorite blend is about 5 carrots, 4 celery stalks, 4 whole long leaves of kale (stems and all), and 3-4 juicing apples. Usually we get about a quart of juice out of that. We can toss the pulp into our compost, or use it to mix with other ingredients and make a raw recipe that goes into the dehydrator. Usually we just compost it.
