Not really crazy about starting days with overly sweet things. I came up with this mix because it’s just enough sweetness to balance the bitterness of the greens, but doesn’t taste like you just downed a pureed fruit salad.
12 ozs (1/4 bag) of Fresh Start Fusion Daily Power frozen mix (green apple, pineapple, kale, broccoli) – it’s a Walmart thing – or just substitute the same with the individual ingredients, plus ice cubes, if you don’t want to freeze everything
4 ozs. Labne yoghurt/kefir (this is a very thick and dense yogurt, without any sweeteners or additives – several brands work, but you can substitute a home-made version by straining a non-sweetened plain yogurt in cheesecloth overnight, which will remove a lot of the extra whey liquid and create a denser protein content.)
Sprig of fresh mint
4 ozs. fresh cucumber
1 T fresh lemon juice
Blend it to desired smoothness.
