Green Drink

Do you know that feeling when you've worked really hard at something and when you're finished you just feel so good? Like you were made to work that hard? I always get that feeling after a long run, or even after cleaning my house, scrubbing the floods, dusting the tables, and making everything pretty again. There is just some kind of raw wholesome feeling from working hard and living how God intended you to live.

Recently, Ryan and I have really been into green drinks. They are raw and wholesome too. "God's candy" is what my aunt used to say about bananas. It's true! Who can go wrong with fruit that's so sweet? My friend Allie over here, just made this drink with so many fun fruits and vegetables that I can't wait to try it out.

Today I made our green drink with a banana, kiwi, pear, kale, spinach, ginger, blue agave and lemon juice. You can really experiment with all sorts of fruits and vegetables that you have on hand.

Green Drink
(makes apx. 16 liquid ounces)

One banana
One kiwi
1/2 pear
3-4 cups fresh spinach
1-2 cups fresh kale
1-2 tablespoons blue agave
a few dashes of ground ginger
1/4 lemonade
water as needed to thin it out

I start by adding my pear, kiwi and banana in the blender and pulse until liquefied. Then in batches I add my kale and spinach until liquefied along with the lemonade, ginger and blue agave.
I make my juice in a blender and I always end up adding some water to help thin it out. If you are using a juicer you won't need to do this.

Yum! Hope you enjoy!


  1. Yummy! I think I'll try this :) I have been making one with strawberries, frozen mago, banana, green apple, spinach, a splash of OJ, and lime juice. The kiwi looks good!
