Using a mixture of lemon juice and purchased lemonade adds bright, zingy flavor to this super smoothie that will get your weekend started with a jolt of healthy greens. Feel free to use more or less honey or agave nectar, depending on the sweetness of the lemonade you use and your personal preference.
Cucumber and Kale Smoothie
Juice of 1 lemon
2 tsp. honey or agave nectar, or to taste
1 cucumber, coarsely chopped
1 green apple, cored and coarsely chopped
4 leaves romaine lettuce, coarsely chopped
4 leaves kale, stemmed and coarsely chopped
1/2 cup (4 fl. oz./125 ml) lemonade
1 cup (4 oz./125 g) ice
In a blender, combine all the ingredients in the order listed and cover with the lid. Puree, slowly increasing the speed to high and using the tamper to press the ingredients into the blades if necessary, until smooth, 1 to 2 minutes. Divide between two glasses and serve immediately. Serves 2.

Super!! Thanks for sharing it!
Can I add carrots? I want to try but I’m afraid that it will affect the taste of the juice,
We checked with our test kitchen, and they suggest not adding in carrots, as it could affect the flavor of the this particular juice. Our cooks recommend pairing carrot juice with flavors like ginger, mango, and pineapple and smoothies and juices. Hope this helps!
Just got this blender and looking for other great recipes to make from W-S for it!
