Green Juice

Here's what you do when you don't know what to do with your kale or when it's starting to look old.  I buy at least 4 bunches of Organic kale a week and at the end of the week I juice any leftover bunches with whatever fruit is starting to look less than fresh.  Last week we finished off all the fruit by Saturday morning so I went and picked oranges off our tree in the backyard to mix with the kale juice.  It is super easy to make, but you need a good juicer!

The ingredients:
1 bunch kale
3 oranges
1/2 cup water

Cut the oranges into quarters and remove the orange from the peel.  You cannot juice the peel, it will give too strong of a taste.  If you have a citrus juicer, you might want to use that instead.  I just don't like to pull out multiple appliances.  I don't like the cleanup :)  If you have an Omega juicer like me, you will get a good amount of pulp from the kale.  You can save that and put it back into the juice, put it into a pasta sauce for dinner or put it in the freezer to add to a smoothie later.

My kids love this juice. They get a nice green mustache when they drink it.  That beats a milk mustache hands down.
