Lately, I’ve been buying powdered greens to have on the days I just don’t have time to make myself a big fresh salad. I know they’re not the perfect substitute for the real thing, but some greens are better than no greens, right?
Plus, I’ve been steering clear of caffeine and found that taking greens can be super energizing in the morning or as an afternoon pick me up.
After reading raving reviews on Amazon, I chose the Garden of Life raw organic green super food powder. I love that it’s gluten-free, vegan, soy-free and doesn’t contain any fillers. It’s made from a bunch of organic fruits and veggies that have been juiced and then dehydrated.
This past Sunday I was sitting out on my balcony thinking to myself how I would love to have a refreshing cocktail, but I wasn’t really in the mood for alcohol. I went into the kitchen, took out the shaker and browsed the refrigerator. Then It came to me…
The green lemonade mocktail
It’s easy to make because you don’t need any fancy tools or a juicer. We all know that cleaning the juicer blows.
Ingredients (for 2 servings)
- 1 scoop powdered greens
- juice from 1 whole lemon
- a few drops of stevia to lightly sweeten
- 16 oz water
In a shaker combine the greens, lemon juice, stevia, and water. Give it a good shake and pour over ice. You can have both servings or share with a friend.
