Looking at the calendar and the weather, spring is in the air indeed! With the fresh weather of the new season, this is a great time to get a fresh start and do some “spring cleaning.” In addition to cleaning around the home, it is also a good time to clean our insides, and a spring detox smoothie is an easy way to start.

Ingredients
Servings: people
Instructions
  1. Roughly chop the avocado, cucumber & pineapple, and place them in your blender (use whatever proportion suits your tastes).
  2. Squeeze in a bit of lemon juice and add a spoonful of fresh cilantro.
  3. Toss in a large handful of kale, and shave in a small bit of ginger (be cautious — a little ginger goes a long way!).
  4. Add a banana if you like (I do!), and fill the container at least halfway with your liquid. (I use green tea for the base, but you could also use almond milk or water. For a thinner smoothie add more liquid, and for thicker texture use less liquid).
  5. Blend until it’s smooth, and you’ll have a creamy, fresh green smoothie. Drink. Love.

 ** You’ll see that I often don’t designate specific quantities and measurements in my recipes. I do this because you know better than I do how much food your family needs and what your tastes are. Cooking isn’t an exact science, anyway — it’s more of an art. (Baking is another story — it actually is science — so I include measurements for my baking recipes.) So use whatever quantity you’d like, make changes to suit your tastes, and substitute ingredients to reflect what’s fresh in the garden and what’s available in your kitchen.
