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)

Directions:

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!
