Get Your Greens Smoothie

Bring on the green! I normally start my day with a big green juice — my favorite is the Morning Green Glory — but sometimes I change it up and decide to place everything I typically throw into a juicer into my blender*. And it is just as delicious! If you’re on a juice only Reboot, then you want to stick with just juice, but if you’re eating on your Reboot too, this is an excellent smoothie to enjoy. But even not on a Reboot, it’s one of my favorite smoothies to drink.

What I love about this smoothie, is it makes 64 ounces at one time (half the recipe if you don’t want that much!). I drink 16 oz./500 ml  in the morning, I bring another 16 oz./500 ml for an afternoon snack and then I store the rest in a mason jar to have the next day. It keeps well for a full two days so don’t be afraid to make a lot!


  • 6 leaves of kale (Tuscan cabbage)
  • 5 leaves of romaine lettuce (cos)
  • 1 cucumber
  • 2 celery stalks
  • 2 apples, cored
  • 1 frozen banana*
  • 2 cups/16 oz (500 ml) water
  • Ice cubes
  • 2 dates, pitted (optional if you want a sweeter smoothie*
  • *Note: I would never put a banana or dates in my juicer, but they are perfect to add with other fruits and veggies in your blender!


  1. Cut cucumber and celery in half, or even fourths, depending on the power of your blender, and core apples.
  2. Add water, kale and romaine to a high-powered blender. Blend on high until greens are mixed well with the water.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients, including a handful of ice, into the blender and blend at least 60 – 90 seconds, until all fruits and veggies are mixed well and form a smooth consistency.
  4. Serve and enjoy!
