How to Make Sunshine in a Glass

green drink

For all you wild juicers out there or for those who need that extra pick-me-up in the morning, here is the ultimate green drink! Now this green drink is not for the light of heart. The beauty in its ingredients is that most of them should be and can be wild crafted, even in your back yard. So here is goes:

Ingredients:

3 Milk Thistle Leaves*

1/4-1/2 cup Mallow Leaves*

1/4-1/2 cup Dandelion Leaves*

1 Red Apple

1-2 tablespoons honey

1 Lemon

Serves 1-3 people

*Wild Crafted 

Basically, you throw all the ingredients in a blender and go. However, be sure to peel your lemon (leaving the seeds in is okay). There’s no need to do anything with the rind or the core of the apple, just cut it into slices and keep it as it is. You may want gloves or tools to work with the milk thistle. This recipe only works with fresh Milk Thistle, not dried or powdered. Once all the ingredients are in the blender, fill it up about 3/4 of the way full or until all the greens are covered. Next, be sure to strain your juice! This is very important to separate the pulp from the liquid, mainly because our bodies can’t digest the Thistle leaves and it could do damage to the body if you intake a large quantity. But there you have it! A Wild Crafted cup of Sunshine! I know it sounds bit weird and hardy, but I promise it is so delicious! ❤
