To honor the release of LEMONADE here is a delicious green lemonade that will bring the Beyonce out in you.
Sweetened with the natural goodness of apple, this lemonade is full of benefits and will give you that glow inside out. Adding ginger will give it a natural kick that will feel so good. Who knew that lemonade could be so healthy? Adding greens will help with the detoxification process and adding a shot of vodka will give you superwoman powers.
As you know, I love drinking warm lemon water first thing in morning and you may have read about the amazing benefits of lemon but here are a few I love to talk about with my clients. I gathered a few of these from thebudwig.com.
Blood Sugar Balance – The acidity of raw lemon juice lowers the impact of any meal on your blood sugar.
Detoxification – Raw lemon juice cleanses the kidneys and the digestive system. It helps the body in the removal of toxins and provides you with a great overall detox.
Brain and Nerve Food – The potassium found in raw lemon juice helps the brain and nerve cells, improves concentration, memory and calms the mind.
Infection – When sickness has developed raw lemon juice is an excellent fighter of infection, as it is rich in citric acid.
Immune System – Raw lemon juice strengthens the immune system which in turn helps fight many illnesses including cancers.
A perfect addition to your summertime feels, make this in a large batch for all of the kids and leave the ginger out. To sweeten even more just add more of apple! If you do not have a juicer try adding coconut water to a blender and follow the recipe below. If you do not like the pulp, strain it through a cheese cloth or actual strainer.
- 1 bunch of kale
- 1 medium cucumber
- 1 lemon. I leave the peel on for the benefits but you may peel for less bitterness
- 1 granny smith apple
- JUICE IT UP
- add ginger for spice
- add more apple for sweetness
- you may also use spinach, romaine, etc.
MUCH MUCH love,
