For those of you new to green smoothies, you'll find this version somewhat smoother and sweeter than my previous Super Green Smoothie recipe, more of a beginner's style! But still packed full of beneficial nutrients.

Ingredients
Kale - 1 piece, washed and stems discarded
Lettuce - 1 large piece or a couple of smaller ones
Cucumber - about 6cm worth
Apple - half, remove seeds and core, leave skin
Parsley - 1 sprig
Coconut milk - 1/4 of a cup
Water - 1 and 1/2 cups

Tips
Some of the ingredients are on the Environmental Working Group's Dirty Dozen list - these are best purchased organically grown.
If it still isn't sweet enough for you, use a whole apple or add one date (soften in hot water first).
Coconut milk can stored in a jar in the fridge once opened for up to a week or more.
If you find it too fibrous still, peel the apple.

If you enjoy a breakfast smoothie, try my Blueberry Bliss recipe, or Banana & Peanut Butter.
