There once was a time when I visited a local restaurant 3 times a week.
I was massively pregnant, and practically everyone in the restaurant knew us by name and had our order memorized.
The Yellow Deli was like visiting Disneyland for me. Only I didn’t have to save 6 years to visit there, and instead I could buy the most amazing tasting waffle ever for only a few bucks. Everything was fresh, came from their farm, and I swear they put some type of addicting additive in their food…
The bread, the bars, the the salads, sandwiches, my favorite veggie burger…And let’s not forget THE MOST delicious tasting Green Juice.
I’ve tried many fresh squeezed green juices at a lot of different restaurants, but this one actually tasted good. It was sweet, tart, and you really had no idea you were drinking chard, kale, or spinach. I’ve tried to recreate it multiple times, but I for some reason could never get the ratios right.
Recently I gave it another shot and let my husband take the first sip just in case I failed bad…
“You did it babe!” I jumped up and down and then said, “Yes! Now I just need to recreate everything else on their menu that way we don’t have to move back!”
- ⅛ c. chilled Yerba Mate Tea sweetened with agave nectar (or your choice)
- 1¼ grapefruit
- handful of spinach
- handful of kale
- 1 large swiss chard leaf
- lemon slices
- Add Yerba Mate to a glass. Having is sweetened is important, otherwise the juice will taste a little funky.
- Juice all the ingredients into that glass, minus the lemon, until done.
- Add fresh juice to frozen glass and serve with a lemon slice.
If you want a step by step explanation on how to make this juice, I’ve filmed a little tutorial for you. A few notes before you watch the film:
-Both kid were sleeping so I’m talking super funny because I don’t want them to hear me.
-I apologize for acting completely and totally awkward.
Have a great day!
