Green Juice to Start Your Day

Published by Paula's Plate on

This recipe, is my go-to juice recipe. 

Loaded with antioxidants and vitamins, this juice is great to get your
morning started or give you an afternoon pick-me-up.  I didn’t have
celery on hand to add to this recipe, but usually I like to throw in a
couple stalks.  This may be a stretch, but if you put a couple ice cubs
in it and pop in a straw, I think it has a lemonade taste to it.

I use a juicer, but this could easily be made in a blender. I’m hoping to get to try it with a Nutri Bullet
soon.

Basic Green Juice

Yield: about 12 oz.
Time: 5 minutes
Ingredients:
  • 1 large granny smith apple (remove core)
  • 5 stalks of Kale (remove stems)
  • around an inch of ginger
  • 1 cucumber (I remove the skin to make it easier for the juicer)
  • 1 peeled lemon

Directions:
If using a juicer, push the ingredients through the juicer.

If using a blender, add 1/2 – 1 cup of water when you blend the ingredients together.

The best part about juicing is all the combinations you can throw together. The possibilities are endless. Drink up!
