Apple and Green Smoothie Recipe

squeeze book coverChange up your morning routine by replacing coffee with apples. If you’re feeling sleepy, grab an apple and ditch the caffeine because apples give you more energy than a cup of coffee!

This combo of apple and greens is packed with health-goods with a hint of apple sweetness. It doesn’t hurt that it’s rich in calcium, copper, iron, potassium, and vitamins B1, B2, C, E, and K.

Recipe courtesy of Karliin Brooks, author of Squeeze Life and the founder of The Squeeze, a cleansing and juicing lifestyle brand located in NYC.

INGREDIENTS:

5 to 6 leaves kale

2 large handfuls spinach

1 green apple

1/2 cucumber

4 to 6 celery stalks

3 to 4 sprigs fresh mint

Handful parsley

Handful cilantro
Wash all produce well. Core the apples and cut all ingredients into juice-able pieces. Juice and enjoy.
