In the Reboot Kitchen: Joe’s Mean Green Smoothie

Hey mates! By now you’ve probably tried my favorite Mean Green Juice, and if you haven’t, well I suggest you do! I enjoy a big glass of it at least 3 times a week because it keeps me energized and full of phytonutrients.

Whenever I make the Mean Green I always make enough for two juices. I drink the first batch as soon as it’s juiced and then I store the other half in an air-tight glass container and save it for the next day. But, here’s the trick. I don’t just drink the juice. I still get the amazing nutrients from the Mean Green but I change it up and make it into a smoothie.

Here’s what I do…I add the leftover juice into a blender, then add a frozen banana and 1 cup of almond milk. Blend it up and there you have it…a Mean Green Smoothie!

Juice (and Blend) On!


  • 1 cucumber
  • 4 celery stalks
  • 2 apples
  • 6-8 leaves kale (Tuscan cabbage)
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1 tbsp ginger
  • 1 banana, frozen
  • 1 cup (250 ml) almond milk


  1. Wash all produce well.
  2. Peel the lemon, optional.
  3. Juice all produce except the banana.
  4. Add juice into blender with banana and cup of almond milk.
  5. Blend until smooth, about 45 seconds.
  6. Enjoy!
