Power Greens Smoothie

 I can't think of a better way to start your day than a big pile of greens.  This is a cleansing, alkalizing, and energizing drink that gives you more energy than coffee.  Don't be scared by the color or ingredient list, the pineapple and lemon both help to cut the green taste, and the result is a vibrant, sweet juice that even the kids will love.  (It may help to rename it Monster Slime or something similar for them).  If you're brand new to juicing/blending or just desire a little extra sweetness, throw in a banana.  I like to make this and put it in a to-go cup to sip on while I run the kids to school.  It sure beats a bagel any day. 

     2 stalks of rainbow Swiss Chard
     1 Collard Green leaf
     4 sprigs of Parsley
     1/2 lemon
     1 cup Pineapple
     1 Apple
     1/2 cup baby spinach leaves
     1 scoop wheat grass powder
     1/2 cup green grapes
     1 cup water

*My lemon and spinach were frozen because that's what I had on hand.  If you use all fresh ingredients add a small handful of ice.  Unless of course you are using a juicer, then run all of the fresh ingredients through, mix with wheat grass powder, and serve over ice.
