Grapefruit & Kale Smoothie

December 27, 2015

 

The holidays are filled with my favorite things: family, festivities, and food.  Too much food, perhaps (although it seems there's no such thing, when it's good food!).  I can't wait to dig in to leftovers, and the fridge is full of them- but my body needed just a tiny pause from all the goodness today.  A gentle cleanse...  something light, tart, refreshing, and nourishing. 

 

 

This green smoothie is all of those things, plus super simple to make.   I love it because of the strong flavors from the grapefruit and ginger (plus they are super detoxifying!), but if you prefer milder flavors, back off just a smidge on those two ingredients, and use orange juice instead of water.  A green smoothie or two later, and I can trade out my yoga pants for jeans again. Or not, because it's winter break, and there's really no need to be getting all dressed up.  Ha!
