Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups apple juice — best to get organic with no sugar added)
  • 2 cups spinach (or kale) — stemmed and chopped
  • 1 apple — unpeeled, cored, and chopped
  • 1/2 avocado chopped
  • 1 tbsp PowerBlend — your favorite flavor
  • 2 leaves basil
  • 1/2 orange or lemon
  • 1/2" fresh cut ginger root

Directions

Combine the apple juice, spinach, apple, and avocado in a blender and puree until smooth, about 1 minute, adding water to reach the desired consistency.

Recipe Notes

Put the liquid in first. Surrounded by water or juice, the blender blades can move freely. Next, add your greens, with chunks of fruit or vegetables going into the pitcher last.

Start slow. If your blender has speeds, start it on low to break up big pieces of fruit, then work your way up to high for a puree. For blenders with function buttons, pulse a few times before switching to puree mode.

Thicken with ice. Added too much juice or coconut milk? Toss a few cubes in the blender and voilà!

Options. The basil and ginger add a more exotic flavor, mixed with Maple Cinnamon PowerBlend, it's delicious!
