Kale Cooler (Kale, Cucumber, Apple, Lemon)

There's not much I can say about green juice that hasn't been already said. It's a wonderful beverage capable of restoring and refreshing us like nothing else can. I love juicing greens and that includes kale. This refreshing drink combines kale juice with the juices of cucumber, apple, and lemon and the result is a less sweet green lemonade. Just lovely.

7 ounces of fresh kale leaves
1 large cucumber, peeled
2 golden delicious apples
3 lemons

Using your machine, juice everything but the lemons. Manually press the lemons with a traditional citrus squeezer. Centrifugal juicers bring out the bitterness in citrus peels and masticating juicers don't like the peels at all. Juicing the lemons separately will give the final result a smoother, more enjoyable flavor.

Strain and then stir to mix.

Serve over ice.

Makes 2 servings of 16 ounces each.

I've been posting juice recipes every day this week! My inspiration is National Salad Month and Foxy Produce's Rejuicenate initiative. If you'd like to know more, check out my original post. Then check back for another recipe tomorrow. And click for more posts about Juice and Juicing.
