Green Lemonade – a raw detox beverage

It’s all over the internet. There are how-to videos on YouTube. And my sister-in-law prepared a fresh batch for us yesterday. Absolutely delicious. And it’s transformed the health and wellness of a good friend of hers. The combination of lemon with apple (I’m told Fuji apples are the best because of their sweetness) and the quiet punch of fresh ginger is scrumptious. If you couldn’t see it, you wouldn’t know you were drinking a ‘green’ drink. Not a hint of grassy taste. … In fact, I can’t wait to brew up my own batch but I don’t have a juicer just yet. For those of you who follow Dr. Oz and/or Oprah, you may recall that he prepared a variation on this green drink on her show. His recipe can be found on her web site.

GREEN LEMONADE – the recipe:
Into your juicer put the following WHOLE fruits & vegetables:

  • 3 lemons
    6 apples
    1 bunch kale
    2 heads romaine lettuce
    1 clump fresh ginger
    1 romaine heart

Juice together. Pulp can be used for baking or eating as-is. If you plan on using the pulp, it is recommended that you remove the seeds from the lemons and apples prior to juicing.

  1. Actually, it’s quite delicious. The lemon and ginger work in beautiful harmony for a gentle zing, while the apples provide sweetness. In the background, the greens show themselves more in color than flavor.

  2. So how often do you drink this? And do I need a super powerful juicer?

    • I enjoy it daily, when I’m keeping up with my juicing. My sister uses a Jack LaLane juicer, which is powerful. I’m borrowing a friend’s 15-yr old Mr. Juiceman, which is adequate but doesn’t do quite as good a job as a newer model.
      For a protein kick, I’ve blended 6-8 oz of the Green Lemonade with a serving of vanilla protein powder. Really great before heading out to the gym for a workout!
