Green Smoothie Challenge Link-Up + Pineapple Cucumber Kale Juice

Green Smoothie Challenge Day 3!  And today is a LINK-UP, so if you are taking part in the challenge make sure to blog about it and join the link-up party!

Today I will be sharing a juice drink.  How does this differ from a smoothie?  When I think smoothie I think creamy, whether from dairy or another milk option.  For a juice drink, the base is water or just the liquid from the fruits and veggies.  It's lighter and could be used in between meals as a snack or as part of a juice fast.
I like to make a juice-water blend for after a workout.  They are pulpy and you will really feel like you are drinking produce, but you will feel amazing shortly after sipping!  I typically get an energy boost and an overall feeling of wellness after drinking juice.  How about you?

Pineapple Kale Cucumber Juice

3/4 cup pineapple
1 small cucumber or half of a large cucumber
1 bunch of kale
1/2 cup chilled green tea 
1/2 cup cold water

Combine all ingredients in a blender.  There will be pulp from the veggies and fruit.  If you are not a pulp fan make sure to use a strainer.

Drink up!
