Georgia Green Apple Smoothie

Forgive me for this outrageously healthy-sounding recipe, but it is January, and therefore all diet resolutions are still in force. I like smoothies, but it troubles me that they’re usually concocted without regard to season or region. This smoothie is made with local ingredients (except the cinnamon) available right now.

1 apple (any local variety), quartered and cored 
1 carrot
½ small bunch kale or spinach (about 2 cups packed leaves and tender stems) or ½ small head romaine lettuce
1 teaspoon honey
Pinch ground cinnamon (optional)
3 to 4 ice cubes
¼ cup cold water

1. In a blender, combine apple, carrot, greens, honey, cinnamon, ice cubes and water. Puree until smooth.

2. If needed, add more water to achieve desired consistency.

1 serving. 5 minutes preparation time.
