Description

This simple carrot, apple kale & ginger smoothie is the definition of a healthy smoothie. A perfect balance of healthy ingredients that takes less than 5 minutes to make and tastes delicious. Low calorie, low sugar and packed with nutrition. 


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1/2 cup kale
  • 1/2 cup apple, chopped
  • 1/2 cup carrots, chopped
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup ice 
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger, diced 

Instructions

  1. Add the kale, apple chunks, carrots, water, ice, honey and ginger to a blender. Blend until smooth. If needed add a bit more water to smoothen out the consistency.
  2. Drink fresh.

Notes

  • The quantities don’t have to be exact for this smoothie recipe - if you have a bit more or less of one ingredient that is ok. You may just need to add a bit more or less water to make an ideal consistency. 
  • Want a sweeter smoothie? Add orange juice instead of water — it will not be as low calorie but will still be a sneakily healthy smoothie for kids. 
  • If you don’t have fresh ginger, you can use ground ginger instead. Add 1/8 - 1/4 tsp.
