Green: 1/2 cup kale 3/4 cup apple juice 1 Tbsp lemon juice 1/4 cup ice cubes optional: a pinch of freshly grated ginger
Pink: 1/2 cup fresh beet juice 1/4 cup coconut water 2-3 fresh strawberries, stem removed 1/4 cup frozen strawberries 1/2 banana
Gold: 1/2 cup fresh mango cubes 1/2 cup frozen peaches 3/4 cup orange juice 1/2 banana
* Juice: You can sub pretty much any of the juices with coconut water – especially the beet and fresh-pressed apple juice which I made using my juicer. orange is also a nice neutral juice to sub with.
*Ice: add ice to the pink and gold layers to make a bit frostier if you’d like. I prefer to use coconut water ice cubes for the flavor and added electrolytes.
* Apple: my apple juice is fresh pressed – use apple cider from the store – the fresher the better. Apple juice sub: if you have a Vitamix you may add in 1/2 cup chopped apple + 1/3 cup water in place of the apple juice. Another sub would be 1/2 cup green grapes + 1/4 cup water. Pear would work too.
