Homemade Green Smoothie Recipe

My first thought when seeing this smoothie was this: gross.
My first thought when tasting this smoothie was this: AWESOME.
I'm not a huge health be honest, I just go through "healthy phases." But I'm really trying to be more consistent with keeping up with healthy eating this time. I love Naked fruit drinks, so I thought I'd try and save a buck and make a similar one myself. This was ridiculously easy to make, and I felt so refreshed after drinking it!

All you need are these few ingredients, and a blender to put them in!
  • 1/2 a cucumber, sliced
  • 1 pear, sliced
  • 1 green apple, sliced
  • 1/2 cup Kale
  • 1/2 cup ice water
If you want a little more sweetness to it, you can add 1 sliced banana. I tried to keep everything in mine  completely green but if you're just starting out, you might need to add a little bit more sweetness to it!
It's not as immediately appetizing as a fruit smoothie, but you have to remember that it's not the same kind of smoothie. This is more refreshing and healthy tasting in my opinion, and I love it!

Let me know if you try it, and tell me what you think!
