Green Juice Cookies

I started the morning by whipping up a batch of green juice. I blended together kale, apple, pear and lime. Since I don’t have a juicer, I made this in the blender and it was really more like green pulp. Although I thought it was delicious, my kids weren’t into it. I did not want it to go to waste, so got creative and made it into a form of cookie. We took these to the park as a snack and the girls loved them. A great way to use leftover juice or smoothie! I am a HUGE fan of repurposing food.
