Calling all Juicers! I thought we’d kick off Frostville’s “Health and Nutrition Month” with my secret recipe for Green Lemonade– don’t be scared! If you don’t already have a juicer, this recipe is delicious and nutritious enough to make you go buy one (or at least borrow a friend’s)! This is a recipe even your kids will love!
If you haven’t yet discovered the benefits of adding fresh, REAL juice to your diet, there are lots of reasons to consider it. When you drink fruits and veggies, the nutrients from them are completely and more readily absorbed into your bloodstream. When eaten whole, the body takes more time to break these nutrients down, resulting in less absorption. You might also be quite surprised to find that you like certain fruits and veggies in juice form that you wouldn’t otherwise enjoy in their whole form (think beets, greens, etc). When paired with the right buddies, you can create a masterpiece!
Leah’s Green Lemonade
2 organic apples– I prefer pink lady, but whatever you buy will work
1 large bunch of organic kale (the more the better- don’t be afraid!)- I prefer kale from Mini Manna or Windy Way Farms! 🙂
1 one inch section of organic ginger
optional: wheat grass, parsley, or any other preferred green
Cut and section your produce according to your juicer’s instruction manual. Serve over ice, find a shady spot, and enjoy!
See you at the Market!
