Favorite Breakfast – Green Lemonade

Favorite Breakfast - Green Lemonade

We love our green smoothies in the morning. Nothing else will wake you up like these – no caffeine jolt needed. This particular green smoothie was inspired by Natalia Rose (just in case you are reading this, we love your recipes).

Green Lemonade:

  • 1 bunch of organic celery
  • 1 head of organic Romaine lettuce
  • 2 Meyer lemons
  • 1   2-inch piece of ginger root
  • 4  medium-sized gala or Fuji apples

Normally, we add several Kale leaves as well, but we were out at the moment.

Wash and prep all the veggies for juicing.

Favorite Breakfast- Green Lemonade - Ingredients for Green Lemonade

Feed everything into your juicer (or blender, if you are blessed with a really powerful one like a VitaMix or Blendtec,  and strain with nutmilk bag). Our Champion Juicer is waiting for a replacement part, so we used our old standby, a little L’Equip, which proves itself to be quite resilient and powerful.

Voila! This stuff is better than any sweet juice. You can feel the power! Try it, and share your favorite green smoothie with us.

  1. I’ve never actually had romaine lettuce in my juice before. It should be quite tasteless I presume? I love celery despite the acquired taste, and spinach’s yummy. Hmmm, I definitely have to try this one!

    1. Hi Vicky,
      Thank you for your comments. Do try the juice, it really is very good. Green juices, initially, can be an acquired taste, but we quite like the flavor of Romaine in this one (it is not as tasteless as you might think). Remember the addition of lemon and ginger adds quite a punch.
      We just looked up your blog and just fell in love with your Linzer cookies. Growing up in Europe, I (Inge) always loved Linzer Torte. It is usually only served on special occasions. But now, that I am celebrating gluten free living, your recipe sounds exquisite, and we will definitely try it and let you know how it turns out.

    1. Thanks you for your great reply. It is great to get to know other blogger’s like yourself. In looking at your blog entries today, and were impressed with your elegant and professional site. Wow, and you even share our love for sweet potatoes. Also, amazing photography! Sorry, that our reply took a little longer, but we were without any internet access for the last couple of days — no blog entries, no e-mail, total silence. Internet access (at least here in N.M.) can be sometimes challenging at best. 😉

    1. We love to get feedback from people!! It really is a healthy breakfast, and very tasty as well. Up until now, we have only ever bought kimchee ready-made (the easy way out, I suppose). But seeing your recipes, you inspired us to try and make it ourselves. Will let you know in the future how our attempt turns out. What a wonderful site!!! All of the international recipes are wonderful. The chicken recipe from today sounds delicious, but as we are gluten free, we would serve it over rice. Hope to hear from you soon.

We love hearing from you
