Ingredients

  • 1/2 Cup fresh red grapefruit juice
  • 1 Cup kale
  • 1 large apple
  • 1 Cup chopped cucumber
  • 1/2 Cup chopped celery
  • 3 Tablespoons hemp hearts
  • 1/4 Cup frozen mango
  • 1/8 Cup fresh mint leaves
  • 1/2 Tablespoon virgin coconut oil (optional)
  • 1 Cup ice

Directions

Juice half of a large red grapefruit and add 1/2 cup grapefruit juice to the blender. Now add the kale, apple, cucumber, celery, hulled hemp seeds, mango, mint, coconut oil, and ice. Blend on high until super smooth. (If using a Vitamix, use the tamper stick to push it down until it blends). You can add a bit of water if necessary to get it blending. Pour into a glass and enjoy immediately.

Smoothie Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Smoothie Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
