Lemon + Ginger Green Smoothie

5 from 1 vote

Ingredients
  

  • 1 Cup water
  • 1/2 Freshly juiced lemon
  • 1 and 1/2 Cups of greens Spinach, or mixed greens like: baby kale/baby spinach/baby chard
  • 1 Apple or pear roughly chopped
  • 2 Celery ribs roughly chopped
  • 1/2 Cup cucumber roughly chopped (if using a high powered blender, keeping the skin on is ok, otherwise I would recommend peeling the cucumber if it has a thicker skin)
  • 1/2 Cup frozen pineapple
  • 1/2 Teaspoon freshly grated ginger
  • 1 Teaspoon chia seeds
  • Optional: Scoop of Avocado or Greek Yogurt if you want to make a creamier smoothie

Instructions
 

  • Blend the water, lemon juice, and greens in a blender until smooth. *If you blend everything together at once the greens don’t blend very well (unless you have a high-powered blender) and the smoothie can get chunky, blending the greens with the liquid first helps avoid that.
  • Gradually add the apple, celery, cucumber, pineapple, grated ginger, and chia seeds until smooth/to your desired consistency.
  • If you want a thicker or creamier smoothie, add a spoonful of ripe avocado or greek yogurt. If you want a thinner smoothie, slowly add more water until blended to desired consistency.
  • Serve! Save and refrigerate the leftover smoothie in a sealed container and enjoy at a later time!
