Lemon Lime Bubbly Goodness!



I had an idea for a yummy green juice and it is so good I just have to share it! I have been craving soda recently so instead of buying some zevia, I thought I would make my own! I got a LARGE bottle of plain sparkling water- not seltzer or anything that had any other additives and started adding it to my juice! Or just adding some lemon or lime juice to it! Yum!
Lemon Lime Sparkler

1/2 Cucumber
3 cups spinach
2 limes
1 lemon
1" ginger root
1 apple
1 pkt stevia
1 C sparkling water

Prepare veg to be juiced- cut peels off lemon and limes, trim end off cucumber, cut the apple so it will fit down the shoot. Juice your veg and then add the stevia and sparkling water. Enjoy!!





In keeping with my green theme, I made a couple shakes that are deliciously green as well!
