It isn't too sweet or too tart or too "green." It is refreshing and easy to digest. I hope you enjoy it!

GREEN LEMONADE SMOOTHIE(based off Natalia Rose's green lemonade)
Ingredients:1 lemon, peeled
1 quartered apple, stem removed (a sweet variety is best, like Honeycrisp or Fuji)
1/2 bag of fresh spinach
1 stalk celery, cut into finger-length pieces
2 cups water
Directions:Blend all ingredients at high speed.
Tips:1. Using a high-speed professional blender like a Vita Mix gives the smoothest texture.
2. Putting the easiest ingredients to blend in first (lemon and spinach) with the firmest ingredients last (celery and apple) will help blend ingredients faster and may eliminate the need for a tamper
Variations:1. When I'm out of apples, I have used 1-2 cups of unsweetened applesauce or pear sauce.
2. Use other greens in exchange for the spinach.
