Greens Cucumber And Pineapple Smoothie

1 large cucumber, peeled, seeded, and chopped
1  cup diced fresh or canned pineapple
½ medium or 1 small sweet apple, cored and cut into chunks
1  4-inch piece of cucumber (leave peel on if unwaxed)
2  to 3 medium kale or collard leaves, coarsely chopped
2  tablespoons hemp, chia or flax seeds, optional
1  cup mango or pineapple juice, or coconut water

Combine all ingredients in a high-speed blender and process until quite smooth. Divide between too tumblers. If the smoothies are too thick, stir in a bit more juice. Serve at once.

Serves 2 (approx. 12 oz. each)
