Weekend Fun and Some Green Juice

The weather was beautiful, so we headed to the beach again.

I haven’t been juicing a lot lately, and I really started to crave some green juice. When we got some collard greens in our CSA box, I decided to use them to make some green juice.


  • 1 bunch collard greens
  • 2 apples
  • 3 Meyer lemons

The lemons and the apples made the juice a lot “less green,” but it still had quite a strong flavor from the collard greens. I probably wouldn’t buy collard greens to juice (at least not without a lot of other “stuff” to “mellow out” the flavor), but since they were in my CSA box, it was  a good use for them, and I enjoyed the juice. The toddler kept on saying how bitter and sour the juice was, but he kept drinking quite a bit of it…

Next time, I’ll make one of my favorite juice combos.

Questions: Have you ever had green juice? If so, did you like it? What’s your favorite green juice combo? I like adding cucumbers. They make a lot of juice, and I like the flavor. I also like adding lots of lemons as they really make the juice taste “less green”… What was the highlight of your weekend?

Be well,
