Juice Recipe #4: Celery, Cucumber, Kale & Green Apple Juice

This is a wonderful and simple green juice to make that’s ridiculously healthy and nutritious. I really just made this recipe up as I am beginning to do more and more and it came out wonderfully. Every single juice recipe I post is a juice I consider extremely delicious and nutritious. I have made plenty of juices that taste awful but I see no point in wasting space talking about them.

When juicing cucumbers that are not organic I wash and peel them. I know there are still chemicals that are within the juice of the cucumber if its not organic but it definitely reduces the amount if you peel them. I used about 4 stalks of celery, 2 kale leaves, one whole cucumber and one green apple for this recipe. Everything was organic besides the cucumber as I just couldn’t find one.

Here are some of the wonderful nutrients and benefits of cucumber juice!

Cucumbers have vitamin A, C and K, potassium, calcium, magnesium and phosphorous,. They are therefore good for our skin, hair and nails, a diuretic and anti-inflammatory. Bear in mind that many of these nutrients are found within the skin so if possible always juice organic whole cucumbers. Cucumbers added to any green juice makes it extremely refreshing. Can’t wait to make more of this juice on hot summer days 🙂

~Happy Juicing!~
