Kale, Peach and Apple Juice | Simple Recipes

I had some extra kale, peach and apple in my fridge, so I made this beautiful emerald juice. I love how kale looks when juiced. So beautiful! Don’t you agree?

Kale, Peach and Apple JuiceIf you’re like me then sometimes you have fruit and vegetables that need to be used up before they go bad.

Sometimes I buy too much at the grocery store right before I’m leaving town for a few days. I don’t know why I do that, but it happens. Then I think all of that stuff I just bought is going to get old. So what do you do with it? I juice it.

I don’t like letting things go to waste, especially good fruit and vegetables. These can be juiced and frozen if necessary. I’ve frozen juice in mason jars before and when thawed they are still very good. But remember, it’s always best to consume your fresh juice right away. Most people say within 20 minutes of juicing it.

Here’s a simple recipe I made with some kale, peach and apple. It’s delicious and so healthy. Kale is one of the healthiest vegetables around.

Here are just some of kale’s amazing benefits: High in calcium, high in vitamin C, high in vitamin K, high in vitamin A, has a good amount of Iron, anti cancer properties, helps to lower cholesterol levels, has an overall alkalizing effect on the body, great for detoxifying our bodies, high in chlorophyll and contains blood purifying properties.

Eating a diet high in Vitamin K can help protect against various cancers. It is also necessary for a wide variety of bodily functions including normal bone health and blood clotting. Also increased levels of vitamin K can help people suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. – mindbodygreen.com

Would you want to let that kale go to waste? Heck NO!

Rich’s Go Green Smoothie

This is a simple green smoothie. I make this or something similar when I’m in a rush. Rich’s Go Green Smoothie. It’s healthy, easy and quick to make.

Why Go Green? Maca, maca gives it the blast as in nutriblast.

My Go Green Smoothie is so easy to make in the Nutribullet. I just love my Nutribullet Pro!, but if you don’t have one you can use a blender.rich's go green smoothie

This recipe has just a few ingredients. My main ingredient is kale (organic). Kale rich in vitamin B6, vitamin K, vitamin A, vitamin C, manganese and copper to list a few. To boost things I add some maca and some ground flax seed.

First a couple of things. My shortcuts. 1. I use frozen fruit. Organic when I can find it. Yeah when I’m in a hurry I’ll use frozen 😉 2. Juice from a bottle. I buy the best I can find. Organic when I can find it. No preservatives and no sweeteners.

Rich’s Go Green Smoothie

rich's go green smoothie cupIngredients:

  • Kale – Buy organic. Fill the Nutribullet Pro cup to about 3/4.
  • Frozen fruit – 1/2 cup or one small hand full.
  • Maca – 1 tsp. No more than that because it will ruin the taste.
  • Ground flax seed – 1 Tbsp
  • Juice – Cranberry, 1 cup
  • Water – Fill to max line on the cup.

Extract for approximately 40 seconds or until smooth and enjoy.

If you’re looking for an energy boost, you’ll like this recipe. Maca powder is derived from a root that grows in the high altitudes of the Peruvian Andes and is known to be “Nature’s Viagra,” as well as a natural energy booster.

Rich’s Go Green Smoothie is especially good for women too because it includes cranberry juice and maca.

For women, maca decreases menopause symptoms, increases bone density and more.

Cranberry juice provides a number of important health benefits — especially for women. Cranberry juice is good for the prevention of urinary track infections, reduces the risk of breast cancer, enhances heart health and more. See the sources below.

You can find two of my main ingredients at a very good price on Amazon, maca and ground flax seed. You can also get a Nutribullet Pro there too. It’s the best price around that I can find. But of course I live in South Dakota :-)
