Fresh Dandelion Juice Cocktail

Posted Mar 11 2009 3:14pm

Dandelion, Apple, Onion Garlic

Dandelions are one of my favorite springtime greens. They spring up in abundance in back yards and fields for us to enjoy. Many times I’ve foraged for dandelion in the back yard, and a few times in unspoiled open fields or dense mini forests, so I could add these greens to a salad. But the other day I used these nutritious greens in a new way, I juiced them.

Fresh Dandelion Juice Cocktail

Once in juice form the bitterness of dandelions wasn’t as potent as I thought it might be, it was actually light and subtle (at least that’s what my taste buds were telling me), and when combined with the sweetness of apples, and accented with the flavors of garlic, onion, and ginger, it made a very tasty drink.

Fresh Dandelion Juice Cocktail

1 bunch fresh dandelion leaves
4 apples
2 small cloves garlic
1-inch piece fresh ginger
1 small wedge onion

Rinse the dandelion greens and apples. Slice each apple in half and remove the stem and core with a , or with what you prefer. Remove the skin from the garlic cloves and onion; cut a one-inch piece of fresh ginger. Run the dandelion greens, apples, garlic, onions, and ginger through a juicer. Enjoy!

Makes about 20 ounces of juice

Today marks juice feasting day 11! Yesterday, day 10, was a good day, but I did notice my energy level shifted a bit. I felt a little bit tired during the afternoon, yet I wasn’t really tired (if that makes sense, it’s the best way I can describe the feeling). There must have been some level of detoxing going on.

I’m wondering if you are or have ever juice feasted or did a fast, if so how was it for you? As for those delicious and nutritious greens ~

Which leafy greens do your prefer for juicing?
