    Leafy greens are very important to your daily diet. Greens include spinach, kale, collards, lettuce, cabbage, broccoli, beetroot, and more. These green leaves can be found in your garden, at your local farmer’s market, or in the produce section of the grocery store.

    Greens are jammed packed with lots of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients, such as antioxidants and probiotics that the body needs and they are so easy to digest.

    If you can’t grow green vegetables, if you don’t like to go to the store and buy them, or if you just can’t stomach the taste of the greens, then the green powder may be the best answer for you. With the green powder, you will be able to get the vitamins and nutrients that your body needs but without the preparation.

    Green powder can be added to smoothies, in salads, health drinks, and now kombucha to get the most out of your drink.

    If you’re not getting everything you need daily in your diet, you will want to include greens and kombucha to assist. You can purchase green powder at any health food store or in the grocery stores.

    For this recipe, you need three ingredients; green powder, a lemon or lemon juice, and kombucha.

    Before you make this recipe, you will need kombucha. If you haven’t made kombucha before, you can follow this recipe for a simple easy to follow step-by-step recipe. Kombucha can take 7-10 days to complete, which includes two fermentation steps.

    Drink the kombucha or place it in the refrigerator if you don't want to drink it immediately. It won't keep at room temperature.

    Before drinking it, you may want to give it a little shake to stir everything up so it's well blended before you drink it.
    If you want to use fresh greens from your garden, it's easy to do. Rinse each leaf gently and pat dry. Place flat inside of the dehydrator and follow the directions of the dehydrator to determine how long it will dry. Once the leaves have dried, place them inside a large zip up back and roll a glass over them back and forth until they are evenly crushed. Keep the dried greens in an airtight container to ensure freshness.
