Favorite Green Lemonade


Sometimes I worry about turning into one of those yoga freaks who solely subsists upon organic kale picked by the spare light of a new moon.

I can’t help myself, though–I’m gaga for this green lemonade. It’s so good, and so, so much better than any version I’ve purchased, including the one I payed over $11.00 for last week.

I like it so much that ever since my juicer arrived, my handy dandy Vitamix--previously the organic apple of my eye–has sat balefully neglected in its far corner of the counter.

This will make enough juice for two enormous glasses but then I am a girl to whom size matters.  I have never ordered a small cup of anything.  My standard question to any barista is, “How big can you do for me?  What’s the largest size you have?”

As opposed to my beloved but forsworn coffee, this green lemonade packs a powerful prana rush that has zero crash effect on the way down.  In fact, there doesn’t seem to be a down.

Share it with your sweetie, if you can convince him or her to taste it, or keep tightly sealed in the fridge for the next day.  Use all organic, if you can.  

  • 1/2 bunch parsley
  • 1 bunch kale
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 bulb fennel (green tops included)
  • 1 knob ginger
  • 1 chunk pineapple
  • 4 stalks celery
  • 1 lemon (today I had Myer lemons.  Yum!)
  • 1/2 lime
  • 1 clementine
  • 1 granny smith apple
  • 1 red apple (You’ll get better results if you use hard apples and not soft like Red Delicious or Macintosh)

Make sure to eat a candy bar later to maintain a healthy balance.
