Not your typical Limeade

By January 13, 2014 Food

This past summer I was introduced to the wonderful world of juicing.  Juicing is a great way to add a variety of vegetables and fruits to your diet, especially if you do not like vegetables.  It’s also a great way to get picky eaters, aka children, to get their daily dosage.  Luckily, my son was exposed to vegetables early and we eat a lot of them, so this is just a fun way for us to experiment with combining flavors.

Most of the juices that I make I create from my own recipes, but I am always on the look out for more.  I start with organic produce, which I then wash and dry before putting in the refrigerator or keeping out on the counter.  I use FIT vegetable and fruit wash to get rid of any dirt or waxes that might be on the produce.  Who wants to eat that?

So, today’s juice experiment turned into a success, and I’m happy to share it with you.  This juice is perfect for a warm sunny day, or just that little kickstart in the morning to get you going.  Please feel free to leave comments if you make this juice and enjoy it! If you plan on posting this recipe on your own blog/page, please give credit back to me. Thanks! I hope that you enjoy it!

Not Your Typical Limeade



A handful of dandelion greens

A handful of kale

1/2 cup of berries (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries)

2 medium carrots

1 medium Fuji apple*

quarter of a medium lime*

Add the carrots on high speed first, then the berries and greens on low, followed by the apple and lime on high.

*I wash the outside of the apple and lime, and don’t remove the skin or rind.
