This summer has been really unusual for our city. While we usually see only two or three rainy days in a summer, this summer has been extraordinarily wet, with often four out of seven rainy days per week. When the sun has come out, it has done so in force, sucking up all that humidity and letting it hang in the air. Ugh!
It’s been a challenge keeping kids happy in this heat. They either can’t go outside because it’s raining, or don’t want to because it’s so hot!
When we decided to go vegan, we invested in a juicer. We’d love a Vitamix, but that may have to wait a little while. We’ve been using our juicer for wonderful combinations of vegetable and fruit juices, but in the heat and humidity of the summer, this has been our favorite by far:
- 2-6 apples, depending on how many you are serving and how tart you like your lemonade. We like it with just two apples, but our apples here are big
- 2 lemons
- Juice lemons in a citrus juicer
- Juice apples or process in a high-speed blender
- Mix together
