Verão! Verão! I have been saying the same words over and over to my husband lately! He gives me a gentle look and a warm smile every time.
Of course he knows me too well, to know that I am terribly missing Brazil this time a year. Summer has begun there and winter is in full force here.
The white sands of the Atlantic Ocean, the sound of the waves that rocks you to sleep in a breezy afternoon, and the salty air that refreshes your senses. Oh! Only if I could be transported…
My first post for 2012 had to be refreshing, bright, and full of energy. After the holidays, I am back with my juicing routine! To be honest, restarting good habits seems to always be difficult in the beginning, but very rewarding later.
This drink is far from making you mean! Mean Green is a refreshing drink that can be made any time and any season. For the warmer days, this drink will bring you energy throughout the day. For the colder weather, this drink will help you to boost your immune system and fight all that nasty sickness that seems to come every winter. All you need is a juicer and some fresh ingredients to enjoy this green juice in a cup.
Mean Green Original Recipe
- 6 kale leaves
- 1 cucumber
- 4 celery stalks
- 2 green apples
- 1/2 lemon
- 1 piece of ginger
2. Juice the lemon, ginger, kale, apples, celery and cucumber. Pour it in a cup and drink everything!
The ginger and lemon add the perfect touch to turn a few ingredients into a marvelous drink!
I will not be transported to Brazil in instance, but I have to say… this winter, juicing will give me a little bit of verão or “summer” in a cup!
