1 1/2 cups of unfiltered apple juice

1 medium raw beet,chopped,steamed or baked (if using a conventiocal blender)

1 medium carrot,chopped,steamed or grated (if using a conventional blender)

2 medium lemons,peeled and seeded

1 cup loosely packed chard leaves

1 teaspoon minced ginger

1 cup of frozen mango

Throw all of the ingredients(except the frozen mango) into your blender and blast on high for about 1 minute,until well combined. Add the frozen mango and balst ffor 10 to 20 seconds more,until smooth and creamy.

 

This vegetable-packed blend is surprisingly delicious according to Tess the author.She recommends you definitely add the mint.The betatine in beets flushes the liver,purifies the blood, and enhances circulation;carrots boost the liver’s anti-oxidant capacity and the lemons improve liver function. Chard provides syringic acid,a flavonoid that prevenst liver degeneration,and mango and ginger have liver-protecting properties,too.

 

I read if we partake of libations it is tough on the liver…so since I enjoy a glass of wine with my dinner meal…I tought this recipe for me is ideal. I have played with this recipe and added other ingredients. BUT I prefer HER recipe the best!

Trying to get in my ….Greens!

Kale

I am trying to eat more greens this year and hear all the great things about kale!
I love to eat fruits and veggies but sometimes lots of greens are hard to eat.

I love Kale chips and kale in my stir fry but this time I made a kale smoothie. I wasn’t sure what it would turn out like nor taste like…but it actually is yummy.

So here you go…my creamy Kale delight!!!
1 banana
2 cups of fresh from the market kale
1 teaspoon of Agave nectar
1/2 cup of unsweetened (or sweetened) soy milk

Place all of the above in a blender.Cover…pulse on puree and serve over ice or without ice. ENJOY!
Very refreshing and interesting yummy taste. No, I did not taste the kale at all.

So if you want to sneak in something healthy and green in your smoothie,your husbands or children’s smoothie…have at it. You know I love to cook and makeup!!!
Welcome in the green not just in your salad or stir fry.Let me know how you liked it.
