Smoothie Recipes with Martha Stewart – Fall Delight
Made with kale, crispy apple, carrot and ginger
Posted October 31st, 2012 by noelle |
Some of my favorite New York mornings in the fall are spent a short walk from my apartment at the Union Square Farmers Market. This weekend everything looked so delightful, so I gathered a beautiful pumpkin, a colorful bunch of flowers, some crispy apples, a few heirloom carrots, several bundles of kale, and a handful of fresh ginger for a smoothie. The earthy carrot and the tangy ginger gave an unexpected kick to this smoothie that I’ve been enjoying on its own and also paired with a salad.
