This recipe is perfect for springing into the season with refreshed vigor!

How does this recipe renew your system?

Kale

This leafy green vegetable is a nutritional powerhouse that provides incredible healing and rejuvenation to the body! Kale is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, chlorophyll, amino acids, vitamins A, C, E, K, B-complex and minerals such as iron, magnesium, copper, and potassium. It gently detoxes the body on a genetic level due to the phytochemicals it contains, literally transforming your health. Kale also contains an exceptionally high amount of antioxidants such as carotenoids and flavonoids which are essential for protecting the body from degenerative diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, prostatitis, osteoporosis, and neurological disorders. Kale contains an organic sulfur which has potent antibiotic, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory properties that work to boost to the immune system and provide significant benefits for chronic inflammation and oxidative stress seen in conditions such as fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic sinusitis, chronic fatigue syndrome, COPD, and irritable bowel disease. Kale is part of the Brassica vegetable family which is known to mildly stimulate the liver and other tissues and organs out of stagnancy. Bringing in this fantastic leafy green can supercharge your health!

Lemons

You must have lemons in your lemonade, right? Putting lemons into your water enlivens and awakens its healing capabilities and maximizes its hydrating ability, due to the exceptional mineral salts this citrus contains. These mineral salts hydrate on a cellular level and produce electrolytes to refuel your body. Lemons are also one of the highest sources of vitamin C and calcium readily available for your body to use. Certain phytonutrients in lemons bind the vitamin C and calcium together, so that they travel as a pair in the body, creating alkalinity and preventing almost every type of cancer. Lemons are also fantastic detoxifiers, purging toxins collected in the body and flushing the liver, kidneys, spleen, thyroid, and gallbladder.

Apples

Apples are a highly alkaline fruit that have the ability to quench both an immediate and cellular-level thirst. Apples are also an amazing detoxifier and contain both malic and tartaric acids that help remove impurities from the liver and gallbladder. They also contain phytochemicals that detox heavy metals and radiation.
Apples are especially rich in phytonutrients and antioxidants, and have wonderful anti-inflammatory properties. Also containing mineral salts and trace minerals, apples hydrate on a cellular level that replenishes and nourishes the body after exercise or stress.

FRESH AND NOURISHING GREEN LEMONADE

This is the most potent and nourishing green lemonade out there! As you sip, delight in the fact that the kale is going to work to aid digestion and liver health! The vitamin C it contains hydrates your body, relieves stiff joints, and increases your metabolism. Kale helps more oxygen get to your blood, thereby fighting viruses and bacteria. Moreover, you are gaining energy from phytochemicals and becoming more grounded with this combination of Mother Nature’s treats. Now that is something we can all raise a glass to!

Ingredients:

  • 1 large bunch kale

  • 3-4 apples (I use green)

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the ingredients for your juicer: coring & chopping apples, peeling lemons, and chopping kale into appropriate sizes.
  2. Put all ingredients through a juicer. I like the Breville Juice Fountain Plus JE98XL, the Omega Masticating Dual-Stage Juicer, and the Hurom HZ Slow Juicer (my personal favorite and the one we use in our family).
  3. Pour over ice cubes and enjoy!

*Note: You can dilute with water if the taste is too tart for you.

Cheers to spring!
