Kiwi Kale Green Smoothie

It has been so hard to stay away from this blog for an entire month. I have been keeping a running tab of ideas I want to make starting July 2nd. In the mean time, I thought I would sneak some smoothie/juice recipes on here since that is what I have been eating lately. People (myself included) are always looking for new juicing recipes to spice things up so here is my contribution.
Just a note- I recently received the greatest gift of any serious cook or juicers dreams...a vitamix! I went big and got the professional series and man this thing does not joke around. Because of the serious horsepower, I don't have to peel any of my fruit (except with the obvious exceptions of bananas, pineapple etc.) thus I retain all of the rich vitamins that are stored in the skins. I also do not have to add very much liquid. You may have to adjust the recipes to fit your blenders power and your preference for thick or thin juices.

Kiwi Kale Green Smoothie
2-10 oz glasses
2-3 lacinto kale leaves plus stems
1 banana
1 kiwi
1/2 avocado
1/2 large granny smith apple, unpeeled, cored
1 tbl ground flax seeds
2-3 ice cubes
1/2 cup water

Blend until smooth and enjoy
note- if you find smoothies with greens in them hard to get down, freeze all of the fruit before blending it. I find that the colder the smoothie, the better it tastes.
