Kale lemonade is simple if you have a juicer. This recipe assumes that you have one. There are different kinds of juicers, each with cost to benefit ratios. Any will work for this recipe. Let us know in the comments if you juice, or are interested in juicing. We do have juices that you can do without a juicer.

If you don’t really dig vegetables, juicing them is a great way to incorporate them into your diet.

    I have a juice cocktail I like to call Green Goodness. Kale, spinach, 1 whole cucumber, 2 apples, 2 oranges, 1 whole lemon with peel. Juice and enjoy.

      Hi Matt – I have been using Athletic Greens and it is amazing but very expensive $100.00 for 12 oz. I would love to try this how much Kale and Spinach do you use?

    Yeah I just got a juicer last week and stocked up on produce. I’m excited to try this one, I have more than enough Kale. Am I adding water to this juice?

    I have been doing smoothies and have lost between 20-24 lbs in under 30 days. I Love the new feeling I get when I put on x-large close and they are loose on my body. I am down to 40.5 waistline from a 44 waitline. I am getting in shape to do 5 spartan races next year, to include the championship race in Vermont. Thank You Spartans for the motivation.

    I love juicing! My fav is a spinach lemonade that is similar to this recipe, except uses spinach instead of kale and also includes cucumber. Can’t wait to try this one!

    This is a bit confusing, can someone explain?

    Ingredients: 2 lemons, juiced

    Directions: Juice all ingredients

    So you are juicing the already juiced lemons?

    This reminds me of the Xhibit Meme. “Yo dawg, I heard you like lemon juice so we put juice in your lemons and then juiced the juice so you could enjoy the juice.”

      Kevin – You nailed it…that was a bit redundant. Because you can juice the lemons peel and all, you can just ‘juice’ the lemons once. Many people don’t juice peel and all, so they might juice the lemons by simply squeezing them. It’s up to the user. You can juice the juice, too – just kinda silly. But it will be, juicy!

    Why won’t a blender work? There’s no hard root veggies here, and we’re removing the core. Is it the peel on the apple that’s the problem?
