Story
I was looking for a good breakfast beverage to bring to work, but wanted something a lil' lighter than a smoothie so I experimented with blending kale juice and variuos citrus juices to get a yummy combo. Tangerines, mineaolas, and lemons were utilized but, a suggestion from my wife (a lover of grapefruits) led me to this blend which I think best neutralizes the sometimes overpowering flavor of kale.
Looking for a great breakfast beverage without milk? This blended raw greens drink is such a great way to kick start your day. It has the goodness of kale and grapefruit juices making for a tasty and convenient morning drink. Who said only an apple a day can keep the doctor away?

Hi Eve, I agree this juice does not taste wonderful but grapefruit juice and kale have so many health benefits that when you drink it, your body with literally thank you for doing it so much good! This is a really good drink for diabetics, for those with blood pressure, persons recovering from cancer and for people trying to lose weight. If not for taste, you should be drinking this juice as a medicine! :)
