Orange Jublious (by John Kohler, living-foods.com)
This drink may remind you of the common "orange drink" seen at malls

Green and Gone Smoothie (very popular pick from GoneRaw.com)
1 quarter to 1 half fresh pineapple
3 leaves of Kale - I use deep green "dino" kale, deveined
1 ripe banana (can use frozen)
4 fresh mint leaves, optional-to taste
1 quarter to 1 half inch of fresh ginger root (can use dry), to taste
2 to 4 cups water
This makes from 32 to 64 fl oz.
Place all ingredients in blender.
Start out with only enough water to cover everything about half-way (allows it to blend to a creamy consistancy)
After all creamy, add more water to get to the thickness you prefer
