After last weeks Almond Joy Chocolate Bark post, I received this message on my Facebook Page from Suzanne Hodgman Hodsden:
That’s really nice, but what about some healthy recipes for us health nuts!
Quite a lot of interesting comments followed hers and a good debate was had by all –except me, I just post the recipes and try to stay out of the debates. And furthermore, while I don’t spend a good deal of time on Facebook, I must confess, I have become a Twitter-a-holic. So hop on over there and send me a tweet.
Today’s recipe is for Green Lemonade. Andrea (a friend of my good friend Chris) turned me on to this delightful drink, which was originally conceived by Natalia Rose.
- 1 bunch kale, use stalks and all
- 1 cucumber, I leave the skin on
- 1 lemon, I leave the peel on
- 1 Granny Smith apple, remove core
- Juice all ingredients with a juicer
- Place green lemonade in glasses
I often enjoy serving this yummy, healthy green beverage in wine glasses. Remember to drink it slowly, so that you can absorb and digest every ounce of green goodness.
Speaking of healthy goodness, Diane from The W.H.O.L.E. Gang is starting her 30 Day Food Revolution on April 26th. She has asked 30 different bloggers to join her in sharing how to shift from processed foods or unhealthy foods to the foods our bodies need and love. Check it out!
Hi to all of you, Thank you posting your awesome recipes Elana. Here I will share another recipe I enjoy. It’s a juice recipe I got online from Lou Corona called Lemon Ginger Blast. He also make what is called Gorilla Milk which is green juice mixed with almond/coconut milk. Look him up on YouTube. Sincerely, Shelly
P.S you can make a smoothie with the Lemon Ginger Blast or the Green juice if you care to have all of the fiber. If you don’t have a juicer, use a blender then strain it through a nut milk bag to get juice. :)

Do you vitamix these with the lemon peel?
I can’t wait to try this once I start getting some garden cucumbers!
I am desperate for a new juicer! I’m a smoothie fan, but am periodically practicing juice cleanses with the seasons. I’m also trying to get more veggies into my two daughters!
Wowza! This drink packs a punch. I could only stomach a small glass, so if I made this again, I would cut the recipe in half. I think I feel pretty awesome, however, even though it was not easy to get down :)
