Ginger adds heat to this tart kale limeade. Think of this as green juice for beginners—it’s friendly, fun, and a little (naturally) sweet.
Note: This recipe yields about 3 cups of juice, enough for two 1 1/2-cup servings. Juice is best served immediately and will lost flavor and color with time. Store leftover juice in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 1 day. In our testing, it took about 1 1/2 pounds of kale to produce 1 cup of juice. Results may vary based on kale and on juicer.
