1 ripe pear or apple, peeled if desired, chopped
2 cup chopped kale leaves, tough stems removed (see Notes)
½ cup cold orange juice
½ cup cold water
12 ice cubes
1 Tbsp ground flaxseed (see Notes)
1. Place bananas, pear (or apple), kale, orange juice, water, ice cubes and flaxseed in a blender. Pulse a few times, then puree until smooth, scraping down the sides as necessary.
Notes: Choose organic kale when possible. Nonorganic can have high pesticide residue.
Look for ground flaxseeds (or flaxmeal) in the natural-foods section of large supermarkets or in natural-foods stores. Store in the refrigerator or freezer.
