apple and kale green juice

Sprinkles and Style || Apple & Kale Green Juice

I'm not one to talk about health and fitness and healthy eating on my blog often, simply because I try to eat well but just can't resist temptation sometimes. I've done a juice cleanse a few times in the past and have actually enjoyed the taste of what I've had to drink. The problem is, juice cleanses, even if just for three days, can be really expensive. My mom decided to invest in a juicer and experimented with some ingredients for a green juice while I was home over the weekend. The combination she put together was absolutely delicious. It tastes more like apple juice than it does any vegetable in the drink itself. The only reason you would even know you're drinking a green juice is just by the color.

Ingredients:
12 baby carrots
1/3 cucumber
1 1/2 lemon {peeled and cut into wedges}
4 small apples, wedged and sliced
2 cups of kale, de-stemmed

Directions:
1. Wash and prepare all of your ingredients.
2. Add all your ingredients to you juicer.
3. When you're done, give it a quick stir and pour into a container.
4. Drink and ENJOY!

The best part of this recipe is that if you don't have a juicer, you can make this in a blender and either strain it before drinking or drink with all the vegetable and fruit goodness that is there.

Let me know if you end up making this green juice or something similar!
