Ever wanted an easy breakfast that’s sure to wake you up? Why not try this delicious yet simple recipe for green lemonade?!
Juicing seems to have become a trend overnight. There are juice bars, juice cleanses, juices for everything, and for good reason! Juices help to cleanse our bodies, and fill us with nutrients we might not get elsewhere. And sometimes it’s hard to swallow those dark, leafy greens, so juicing is a great way to get in those extra veggies.
Once I gave up coffee, I still felt like I needed to replace it with something in the morning. I love to drink water with apple cider vinegar as soon as I wake up to flush the toxins, but I still needed a little jolt. Enter green lemonade.
I’ve seen many recipes for green juices, but I wanted something that would be good for our girls and I to try. I also wanted something that wasn’t too tart, with just a touch of sweetness. And green apples are the perfect ingredient to give your green lemonade a little natural sugar kick in the morning!
So after playing and experimenting I’ve found the perfect balance for the kids. This green lemonade is one of our favorites juice recipes to have in the mornings, and surprisingly the kids love this! Not just the finished result either, but they also enjoy helping to prepare the produce, and throw it in the juicer. (Safely and supervised of course!) Who knew getting kids to drink their veggies could be so easy and fun?!
