    After you’ve rinsed all your ingredients, chop the apple into wedges, your lemon in half, and grade the skin off the ginger you are using. Optional: If you want an extra bit of sweetness, add half of a banana.

    Side note: If you don’t have a proper juicer and are using a blender like me, make sure to remove the stem from the kale since that’s is the bitter part of the plant.
