put the ice in a blender.
chop & peel half of a carrot & add it to the blender.
chop up a banana. mine was frozen because I like my smoothie thick & icy, but that's completely optional. if you prefer it icier but don't have frozen bananas at hand, just add 1 or 2 more ice cubes.
chop up about a half cup of greens. I used frozen kale and arugula.
after they're chopped.. it's really important to not just throw them in whole because you might get a huge chunk of kale in your smoothie. unless you like that sort of thing😋
chop some berries, about a half cup as well. I used frozen raspberries.
section a lemon in two. I squeeze both halves into the smoothie because I love lemon and it boosts your metabolism, but if you don't like the pungent taste, I would only use half.
chop up half an apple. I recommend honey crisp! Save the other half😉
add it all to the blender & blend!
after about 15-20 seconds you're probably thinking ... this doesn't look like a smoothie. well you're right! last step
add about 2 tablespoons of fat free milk, almond milk, or soy milk. whichever you prefer! and stir it all in the blender so it'll blend evenly.
pour it into a glass and TA DA! yum😍
if you want a lil snack with this, chop up the other half of the apple, add some unsweetened wheat and barley, maybe a tablespoon of milk, and enjoy!
