Sweet and Sour Green Juice
If you found me sitting on my living room floor drinking this green juice, eating peanut butter with a spoon straight from the container, and blasting 90’s Ani DiFranco, well… you could chalk that up to awesome taste, cool life-stylings, or… more likely, single real-life independent-woman cat-lady instincts come to life. Related: please listen to Dilate asap.
I also have my old pair of Dr Martens from 1997 and I always think that oooonnneee day they might make sense on my body again. I know that will never be true, but a girl can hope.
Can we just get on with the juice? My peanut butter and Ani consumption are always part of the deal. You can dig it.
These days New Orleans is party stormy, part warm breezy, part haunted tropic, part angry beauty. I wanted a juice that matched that in sweet and sourness.
Lemons (from a local tree thankyouverymuch), romaine for green, apple for sweetness, and cucumber for girth and clean juice! The combination is both satisfying and bright. Totally the gateway into Spring. Just like those dang Cadbury candy coated eggs that are taunting us at the drugstore. Don’t buy those! (Until you’ve had all your green juice and they’re on mega sale after Easter… then go NUTS! cool thanks.)
We’ve talked about juicing before: On Juicing.
- 1 large apple, cored and sliced
- 1 unpeeled cucumber, quartered and sliced
- 1 large handful clean romaine lettuce leaves
- 1 lemon, sliced, quartered, and peeled
- Run all of the fresh fruits and vegetables through a slow juicer. Serve over a bit of ice, or room temperature. Enjoy!
