start your day right

Try this smoothie.  It's really chuck full of nutrients.  I love starting my day with good nutrition.  It's a good feeling.  I've posted about this smoothie before but it's really a classic.  If you aren't drinking green smoothies, it's time to get in on all of the action.  Here's me peer-pressuring you to drink it.  Just do it.  Everyone's doing it :)
Kick Start
Well, it’s no coffee but it’ll give you the energy you need to start your day.  This shake is high in antioxidants (vita A, C, E), magnesium, iron, calcium, and B vitamins.  This is the perfect blend to KICK START your day.
1 mango cut
1 cup pineapple chunks
2 cups unfiltered apple juice
2 cups water
Handful blueberries (frozen works great)
1 cup spinach
2 cups kale
1/2  cup parsley
2 red chard leaves
1 collard green leaf
5 apricots (I use frozen)
Ice, optional

Blend until smooth and serve.  Makes 6 pint sized servings.
