Kale and Apple Smoothie

Kale is an amazing super food known for its wonderful anti-cancer agents that help your body detoxify and remove carcinogenic compounds.  It is also filled with vitamins A and C which help make it a great immunity builder.  This smoothie is one of my favorite breakfasts.  The lemon cuts the bitterness of kale and the little bit of agave adds just the right amount of sweetness.  Kale is tough and full of fiber so it is best to use a vitamix or high-speed blender to break it down.  Either way it is still a little chunky towards the bottom of the glass so I usually add a little water or use a spoon to finish it off.    
In a Vitamix or other high-speed blender place 3 cups of fresh kale,
2 apples, cored and quartered, 1 lemon, peel removed, 8-12 oz water and 1 tsp agave.
Blend well on high.

Makes 24 oz.
Enjoy!
