Green Lemonade

green lemonade

Ahhh yes! I’m back on juicing! Life kinda got in the way!

apple, romaine lettuce, lemon

I found this *recipe* for Green Lemonade in the latest Whole Living Magazine. I had all the ingredients and gave it a try. Genius! The apples provide the sweetness you need in a lemonade. The head of romaine lettuce gives the green element & the extra juice you need to dilute the lemon & apple juice.

I let Cooper have a taste and was shocked to find him chasing me around the house for more. Guess who found a good way to get the boy to eat lettuce?

Look at how electric it is!! It gives you such a boost!

electric!

Soo tangy and fresh! It made me bounce off the walls.

As one of my friends said…could be a good Frankenstein Juice for Halloween!

Green Lemonade

  • 1 head romaine lettuce
  • 1 lemon, with peel cut off
  • 2 apples (I used Granny Smith)

Juice the lettuce, lemons & apples together. If you want a sweeter, less tangy juice use a sweeter apple. I used Granny Smith so it gave a lot of tang!

    This is making me wish I owned a juicer! I wonder if I could make a smoothie-like drink out of these ingredients with my blender… Hm.

    I am an avid juicer, and if you loved this one then you should definitely try my favorite juice…kale, green apple and ginger! It’s sweet and spicy and delightfully yummy. Its perfect for summer juices when you want something cold and refreshing, and beet juice just doesn’t hit the spot.

      Thanks Casey! I do love kale & apple AND ginger! I’ve only made a kale apple pear juice- but yes I totally will try this! Thanks!!
