2. Power Gulp
A lot of these recipes are health driven, starting with this wonderful green juice.
The veggies mix beautifully with the fruits, coming together to create a crisp, sweet, refreshing drink that really boosts your energy.
Thanks to the kale, especially, you get so many nutrients – it's a super juice made from a super food!
Drink this if you're pregnant or around your period, especially if you get really bad cramps.
1 cup sliced kale (from about 3 large leaves)
1 cup seedless green grapes (about 28)
1 English cucumber, thickly sliced
1 small Granny Smith apple (4–6 ounces), cored and cut into chunks
1/2 cup water
In a blender, combine kale, grapes, cucumber, apple, and water;
blend, scraping down sides occasionally, until smooth.
Strain juice and, if desired, thin with additional water.
Before serving, garnish with a fresh kale leaf and a cucumber slice (optional).
Refrigerate up to 2 days (shake before serving).
