Has your get up and go, got up and gone? Juice up your day with nourishing greens, bursting with energy to spare. We added a kiss of apple and a handful of strawberries for sweetness and recommend including a frozen banana for an extra creamy texture. Our Redwood Hill Farm Plain Kefir or Green Valley Organics Plain Kefir pack a punch of protein. Make enough to share as family and friends will be green with envy of your renewed vim and vigor.

1/2 cup unsweetened apple juice or cider
