Arnold Palmer on the Green smoothie

bubbles of delight

I am generally a bad judge of a tasty "healthy" smoothie. Why? Because I genuinely really and truly like the vaguely nauseating nose of chlorphyll from most veggie drinks, including the ones that claim to not have that particular perfume. That said, THIS drink is none of that. It is so cleansing and tasty and warming and cooling all at the same time that I can say that most anyone will like it. Including those who gag at anything like what you see in my admittedly terrible Instagram photo above. Tell them it's a good-for-you Arnold Palmer and that you threw grass in to make it more authentic. Ok, don't tell them that. In fact, don't tell them anything. Just hand them this with a super pretty straw and know that they will feel vibrant and well thanks to the magical combo of green tea, green apple, spinach, ginger, and lemon. It goes down easy and kills whatever is ailing you. Fore!

Arnold Palmer on the Green!
1-2 large handfuls of spinach
1/2 cup of cold green tea (make a cup, let it steep extra long, and place in the fridge for a few hours or overnight)
2 ice cubes
1 green apple sliced
1-2 inch piece of ginger, peeled and sliced
Juice of 1/2 fresh lemon

Place all ingredients in a high powered blender and blend away! Serve immediately.
