This fresh tangy smoothie really does taste like lemonade, and it has the goodness of lots of greens as well. It has a bright lemon/lime color and is really refreshing.
1 whole lemon with peel
2 - 3 bananas
½ fennel bulb
1 - 2 stalks of celery
1 head sweet napa cabbage
¾” chunk of fresh ginger
½ teaspoon turmeric powder (optional)
When I say “sweet” napa cabbage I am referring to one that doesn’t have that harsh cruciferous taste that some cabbage (and other cruciferous veggies) can have sometimes. Usually good organic napa cabbage tastes sweet, but just take a taste before you buy to be sure.
