Here are 2 new green juice recipes. One is light and sweet and the other is tart and has a stronger ‘green’ flavor. Both are equally delicious and of course full of nutrients that are bound to leave you feeling clean & much healthier. Use organic ingredients if possible. Each recipe makes approximately 16 ounces of green juice.
Recipe # 1: Cleansing Green Juice
- 1 large cucumber
- 5 celery stalks
- 2-3 apples
- 1/2 lemon (you can juice with the peel on)
All the celery (a powerful diuretic) in this juice makes it a great cleansing juice recipe!
Recipe #2: Tart & Zing Green Juice
- 2-3 mustard green leaves (they are pretty bitter so use with caution)
- 1/2 inch of ginger, no need to peel!
- 2 apples
- 3 celery stalks
- A handful of cilantro
Adding ginger to a juice definitely boosts its anti-inflammatory power, strengthens the immune system & improves circulation. It also gives the juice that ‘zing’ flavor!
~Juice & Enjoy!~
Here’s a wonderful juice recipe passed on to me by a girlfriend. I love it’s rich deep color but even more I love it’s taste. It’s made up of vegetables that are sweet and the ginger adds a nice zing to it! Can’t imagine this recipe without the ginger but juicing is all about creating what you love and enjoy the most. I made about 32 ounces of this juice this morning among other juices for my juice fast day on Saturday but to make just one glass (8 ounces) I’d use 1 beet, 4-5 carrots, 1 apple and a small piece of ginger the size of a large grape. I’m not sure what other folks do with their beets when juicing them but I wash them very thoroughly and cut off the top that was attached to the beet greens. As usual, with carrots I wash thoroughly and simply cut off the tops and tails. Don’t forget to take out the apple’s seeds! Do not peel the apple or carrots as they contain nutrients. This juice recipe as I later discovered is pretty common among juice-making enthusiasts. Well, I’m thankful for this recipe and thankful for the girlfriend that passed it on. Sharing is definitely caring.
