Does it keep? 24 hours.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup ice (optional)
  • 2 cups packed kale (fresh or frozen // organic when possible)
  • 1 cup ripe frozen mango cubes (organic when possible)
  • 1 cup ripe frozen peaches (organic when possible)
  • 1 Tbsp minced fresh ginger
  • 1 1/2 - 2 lemons or limes, juiced (yields ~1/4 cup or 60 ml as original recipe is written)
  • 1 1/2 - 2 cups filtered water
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup (optional // depending on sweetness of fruit)

Instructions

  1. Add ice to the blender first and crush. Then add kale, mango, peaches, ginger, lemon juice (starting with 1 lemon (2 Tbsp or 30 ml // amount as original recipe is written // adjust if altering batch size) and working your way up) and 1 cup water (240 ml // amount as original recipe is written // adjust if altering batch size) to start. The amount of water will depend on how many of your ingredients are frozen.

  2. Blend until smooth, only adding water a little at a time as needed, and scraping down the sides/mixing as needed.
  3. Once well blended, taste and adjust seasonings as needed. If too tart, add more fruit or a little maple syrup (optional). For more zing, add ginger. And for more acidity, add more lemon juice. To make it thicker/colder, add more ice. Blend as needed.
  4. Divide between two (amount as original recipe is written // adjust if altering batch size) serving glasses and enjoy immediately. Best when fresh, though leftovers will keep covered in the refrigerator for 24 hours.
