Calories 265 kcal
1 cup packed kale (see notes) 1 green apple, cut into 1" chunks 1 kiwi (see notes) juice from ½ lemon 1 tbsp. honey ¾ cup coconut water (regular water works too) 1 handful of ice cubes (optional)
Place all ingredients in a high-speed blender and blend until smooth. Taste and adjust as needed. Add more honey or lemon juice to taste. If it’s too thick, add more coconut water. Pour into a glass and enjoy!
I use curly kale, but Lacinato, or even baby kale will work. Tear the kale leaves from the thick inner stems before adding to the your smoothie.
Cut the ends from both sides of your kiwi, then cut the kiwi into quarters and add to your blender, skin and all (the skin is the most nutritious part!)
Please see blog post for add-in options and substitutions.
If all ingredients are at room temperature when adding to your smoothie, I recommend adding in a handful of ice cubes.
If you don't have a high-powered blender, you can blend the kale and coconut water first before adding remaining ingredients (this will help the kale to break down.)
