Apple-Banana-Tomato Protein Smoothie

I know, I know, it sounds gross.  I was honestly nervous about how this one was going to turn out, but I just kept thinking about V8 and how they can make tomatoes work so I gave it a try anyway.  I must say that I am glad that I did because it turned out delicious.  It smelled like banana and the flavor was mostly banana and apple with an occasional fresh tasting bite of kale thrown in. 
*I apologize for missing my initial pretty pre-mixed photo, I accidentally deleted it on my camera :(

1 Cup Frozen strawberries & Blueberries
1 Scoop Vanilla Protein Powder
1 Banana (Sliced)
1 Leaf Kale (Ripped into pieces)
1 Medium Tomato (Seeded & Sliced)
1/2 Cucumber (Peeled & Sliced)
1 Apple (Cored & Sliced)
1 Peach (Pitted & Sliced)
1/4 Cup Blueberries
1 Cup Apple Juice (Not From Concentrate)

Add the frozen ingredients into the blender first and then add the protein and the remaining ingredients, top with the apple juice (This helps ensure a better overall blend).  Blend on medium/high speed until well blended and serve.  This gives you 2 smoothies to enjoy so that you can take care of 2 days at once, refrigerate the remaining smoothie.  Enjoy!

Mix all of the ingredients
Serve & Enjoy!
