We are now three weeks into summer 'break' with my girls, and I'm ready for September.
Not because I don't love being with my girls all day, but I'm over the 110 degree weather (and it will get worse). And...As much as I love swimming every day, I don't. Unless it's on a beach, of coarse.
Throughout the day, the girls and I get really thirsty, and I'm always looking for new ways to rehydrate without plain water. Lemonade is always a requested choice, but I would love something that offered a little more nutrition. Then I was reminded about THIS drink that I had a few weeks back, and knew I had to recreate it.
I could have gotten in my car and just ordered one for myself. But it's 110...I don't drive in 110. Unless it's to a place where my body will be in water...
Popeye Spinach Juice
- 2 navel oranges
- 3 handfuls spinach
- 2 limes
- Juice all ingredients in your juicer, not blender.
- Drink immediately, and serve over ice. (Make sure all of your ingredients are cold before juicing!)
I haven't tried this drink with other greens or citrus but I have a feeling it would taste great with lemon too!
Now i'm off to blow up a large inflatable Disney Princess Pool in 110 degree weather and try not to pass out.
Wish me luck!
