Green Treat Smoothie

This is my favorite smoothie right now...it's packed with a little bit of everything for my body.  Grab your juicer and get to juicing!  If you don't have a juicer, your blender will work just fine. (it comes into play after making the juice anyway)

Green Treat Smoothie
Yields: 2 (16-18oz.) Glasses Blended or 1 (8-10oz.) Glass Juiced

1 cup Baby Spinach, or a handful
2 small stems Kale, or 1 large stem
1 Bartlet Pear
1 Gala Apple (increase to 3 apples if not adding organic juice below)
1 large Carrot, or 1/2 cup Baby Carrots
1/2 cup Pineapple, or 1" thick ring
5 medium Strawberries
1 Peach
1/2 Baby Cucumber, or 1/4 regular cucumber (cucumber is strong when juiced/blended)
6 oz. Organic Apple Juice no sugar added (optional)
A palm full of Parsley leaves (optional)
1 scoop Wheat Grass Powder (optional)

Wash all vegetables & fruit to remove any pesticides.

Core apple(s), pear and peach. Remove leaves of strawberries. Core and remove the rind of pineapple.

Suggestion: If blending for a smoothie and not just juice, freeze pineapple, peaches & strawberries. Do not juice them, combine with juice and blend until reaching desired consistency.

Juice ingredients together.  Leafy ingredients need to be juiced at the same time with apples, cucumber, peach, pineapple or carrots.

After juicing, combine the juice and some of the pulp from the juicer's catch bin in a blender until reaching desired consistency.
