Delicious Green Lemonade

by Carol Hess on May 22, 2011


This recipe came from Rebecca Kane of Shine on Raw, a raw food expert and life coach.  It is absolutely delicious and a great way for a “beginner” to try out kale.  The apples and lemon disguise the taste of the kale.   Rebecca also tells me that celery dilutes what can sometimes seem like the overpowering taste of greens when you’re not used to it. 

When I drank this lemonade, I felt like I was drinking liquid energy.  My rather heavy head cold was GONE the next day.  But don’t wait until you’re sick to give this recipe a try.  It’s yummy!  And be sure to check out all the other great recipes on Rebecca’s website — all free. 

By the way, Rebecca will be publishing a book soon about the raw food program she has developed – a very cleverly designed program that you can personalize to suit your individual taste preferences and lifestyle. 

The book will also be chockful of terrific recipes that make healthy raw food taste as good as it is for you.  Stay tuned to hear when the book is going to be released and how to get hold of your copy. 


3 apples

1 lemon (peel removed)

2 cups curly kale

3 celery sticks 


Juice all the ingredients and serve over ice.   Smack your lips and say, “Yum!”

Mmmm good. I’ve been making green lemonade off and on for a few years and will share a couple of variations some of you might like. If you add a chunk of fresh ginger to the juice it’ll add a delightful flavor. In addition, cilantro makes it extra yummy . . . but only if you like cilantro, of course!

I’ve found that the juice will stay tasty for about 24 hours (if you’re like me and want to make one big batch). It can also be frozen, which some people do so they can bring it with them when they’re traveling via car and want to keep with a healthy diet.

Happy Sipping!

Lori, those are terrific tips. I love both ginger and cilantro and can’t wait to try both. What’s the best way of storing it for 24 hours? Love the idea of freezing it, especially with summer coming — green lemonade ice cubes anyone?

So glad to have you aboard, Lori. As a two-time breast cancer survivor, I imagine you’ve got lots of great self care/healthy living experience to share. Thanks so much for chiming in on the green lemonade.
