Remember slime from Nickelodeon? Or Slimer from the Ghostbusters? Well, that’s what this green gooey juice reminds me of. But don’t be put off looks, it’s actually pretty tasty. I got a Vitamix blender for Christmas and this week I’ve been having fun with fruit and greens. (For those that have never heard of Vitamix, it’s the Roll Royce of blenders. It’s got a super-powerful blade that will pulverize just about anything.) This post isn’t really a recipe, just ideas for mixing up a fresh juice combo.
Mango kale grape juice
Juicy mango slices
Mango Kale Grape Juice (serves 2…or one thirsty person)
- flesh from one ripe mango
- half a bunch of kale
- handful of grapes
- water as needed
Tear the kale leaves from their stems. Place in blender with 1/4 cup water and puree. Add mango and grapes. Continue to blend until smooth. Add water if the mixture is too thick. Pour over ice and feel good as you sip health in a glass.
*Blending the greens with the water before adding fruit is really helpful in getting a smoother consistency.
Yesterday’s combo: spinach, strawberries and cucumber…just as yummy!
