A great pick-me-up beverage that’s simple, refreshing and packed with nutritional goodies. Try it with breakfast, or whenever you need an energy boost.
A very simple, refreshing beverage packed with nutritional goodies and a great pick-me-up – a hybrid of a juice and a smoothie. The lemon and apple offset the earthiness of raw spinach. Add more liquid to achieve the consistency you like. If you want this drink a little sweeter, add another half an apple. Try it with breakfast, or whenever you need an enrgy boost.
