We love a green juice in the morning, but we don’t love losing all that fiber. Instead we like to blend up batches of whole fruit and vegetable smoothies. And while it should be as easy as dumping all the ingredients into a blender, there are a couple of tips that will make your mixture blend up silky smooth. Because the apple is fairly difficult to blend, it’s helpful to put the greens and liquids—apple juice in this case—in the blender first. That way the blades can create a more substantial liquid base in which to grab and blend the apple.
1 1/2 cups apple juice

How to Make It
