There is nothing like a refreshing lemonade in the summertime. My boys actually love this drink all year round. This is a-ok with me because little do they know it is packed full of green leafy Kale! Kale is loaded with nutrients like the best form of B vitamins, antioxidants, vitamin C, A, K, and contains ITC (isothiocyanates) among many others which aids in our detox pathways.
I always add coconut oil to my smoothies because of its antimicrobial, antioxidant, and anti-fungal healing properties. It boost the immune system and is wonderful for the skin and hair.
Enjoy your summer with this yummy drink!
All ingredients are organic:
2 Cups filtered water
1 T. coconut Oil
1 T. organic pure maple syrup (or honey)
2 T. fresh or bottled lemon juice
1 Cup Kale or large handful
1 bag of strawberries
tiip: add a few blueberries to cut the “green” color (if it matters to your children)
Throw all ingredients into the mixer and blend until very smooth. You can also try variations of fruit and also spinach with it too. Enjoy!
