Green Smoothie (aka Karen’s Cocktail)

Prep Time 10 mins
Course Drinks


  • Vitamix


  • 1 Bunch of kale
  • 1 Bunch of parsley
  • 5 celery sticks
  • 1 cucumber
  • 3 inch hunk of ginger root
  • 2 apples seeded and quartered
  • 1 frozen lemon
  • 1 frozen lime
  • 1 cup water


  • Put water in Vita-Mix and blend frozen lemon and lime with water until slushy.
  • Add each of the other ingredients blending after each ingredient is added.
  • These are not exact measurements. You can use any amount of each that you want.
  • You can also use other ingredients but the kale is the most beneficial.
  • This will give you a blender full that would last me about 3 days.
  • I put 2 tablespoons of chia seeds in the bottom of a large glass and pour the smoothie in.
  • Mix thoroughly.


WARNING>>> This is going to be very tart from the lemon/lime and bitter from the kale but it is REALLY good for you!!!
