Beach Body Cleansing Green Smoothie

I'm trying this green smoothie recipe to get in shape for summer. Let me know what you think!
You will need:

1 handful of kale leaves (make sure to take the leaves off of the stem) coarsely chopped
1 apple (I used a Gala apple) chopped
2 celery stalks chopped
about 1 tsp. of finely chopped ginger
1 small cucumber chopped

freshly squeezed lemon juice for taste
2 cups of water
optional: you may add stevia drops if you want some added sweetness 
( although I thought the apple made it sweet enough)


Blend the kale leaves with the water until smooth. 
Then add all other ingredients and blend to desired thickness.

If you do not like a thick consistency I would suggest juicing instead of blending. 
If you're juicing then just leave out the water. It's as simple as that!
