Spring Clean Up

Now that we are back to earth, it is time to clean things up around here.

First stop, myself.

Here is a new rendition of a green juice I posted a few months ago. 
I've been adjusting the flavors, and I think this one is pretty solid;
perfect for Spring cleaning.

Think of it more as a lemonade than a juice or a smoothie.

Straining is a must. 
(You can eat the pulp later if you feel you need the nutrients...blargh)

In fact, the fancy pants in me would double strain it, and pour it over ice with an extra wedge of lemon.


"You Only Live Once!"

Makes a large batch of approximately 4 cups

One ripe pear, cut into cubes (don't worry about peeling because you will be straining it anyhow)Two lemons, skins removed, cut into quarters
One hunk of fresh ginger, diced
2 large leaves of kale, ribs removed and chopped
1 handful of baby spinach
3 cups of cold water

Blend all of the ingredients together (you may need to work in batches).
Strain using fine mesh into a large container. 
Mix well. 
Optional: Strain a second time
Serve immediately.

Enjoy and ignore those snowflakes.
Spring will come...right!?!
