What says summer more than watermelon? And, it’s so nourishing for your kidneys, since it's high in water and high in potassium. Sometimes, I have a whole day of eating nothing but watermelon, to flush my kidneys.

Drink this smoothie for a delicious summer breakfast or as an afternoon snack with your friends. You can even pour it into a popsicle mold and freeze it for later!

INGREDIENTS

  • 7 cups fresh or frozen watermelon
  • 1 cup ice
  • 4 limes
  • 1 tsp vanilla

A triple fruit punch of grapes, pineapple, and banana make the Turning Green Smoothie sweet, and the spinach flavor is mild.

With an added scoop of any protein powder (like my bone broth protein or plant protein, both of which come in vanilla, chocolate, and natural flavors), it gets even better.

  • 3 large handfuls spinach
  • 2 large leaves kale with stems
  • 1 cup green grapes
