Ingrid’s Amazing Green Lemonade

Green juice is a healing elixir! Green juice balances your pH give you vitamins, minerals and enzymes.  Within minutes of drinking your green juice your body gets a boots of energy.  It is best to drink it on an empty stomach and wait 30 minutes before eating anything afterwards.

2 servings
½ bunch organic celery
2 stalks kale
1 organic cucumber (if not organic peel)
1 organic apple (green or Fuji)
1 whole organic lemon with peel
1” fresh ginger (optional)

Put all vegetables through the juicer.

You can keep this in the refrigerator for 2 days in a closed glass container.  It is better to drink it immediately but if that is not possible you will still reap benefits even 2 days later

Berry Green Smoothie
If you do not have a juicer you can still get the enzymes, vitamins and minerals of greens by adding them to a fruit smoothie.  You don’t even taste the greens.
2 serving
1 banana
16 oz strawberries
4-6 leaves kale stems removed torn into small pieces
1 stalk celery cut into 1” pieces
¼-  ½ cup  water or coconut water

Blend banana and strawberries with enough water to facilitate blending.  Add kale and celery blend until smooth. Pour into a glass and enjoy!
