Superfood: Kale Juice

Real-quick like...If you've heard of all the health benefits of kale (there are many, read here), but like me, can't quite acquire a taste for the greens, might I suggest fresh kale juice. I tried it for the first time today - made it at home.
I took a handful of fresh kale, and rough-chopped it, did the same with about half a raw carrot. Shredded some fresh ginger, and blended it all with about 1 1/2 cups of water. Then, poured the mixture through a sieve to get the vitamin and mineral rich extraction.

The taste is pleasant and mild - fresh but not necessarily earthy, like some wheatgrass juices.

I added my shot to a bit of fresh-squeezed OJ, and topped it with a dollop of organic honey we received as a gift from a farmer friend in Rio. (I know, how annoyingly granola of me!)
To be honest, it is heavenly! Try it sometime.
