While I do not have a set "recipe", I do have a template I typically follow. This morning's juice was made with our delicious organic farmer's market finds:
I used a bunch of kale, one apple (Fiji or Gala or something of equal sweetness), a quarter of a lemon, a bunch of carrots, a quarter of a cucumber and 2 stalks of celery. I vary the amount of each vegetable each time based on what we have. I will also you ginger instead of lemon sometimes. The ginger gives it a nice spice, but sometimes I accidentally use too much, which makes it too spicy for Emerson. I will also use organic beets sometimes (but be careful because many beets are GMO). I also do not always use cucumber. Sometimes I like to throw in some lettuce (green leaf, red leaf or romaine), too.
Our morning juice:
1 bunch of organic kale
1 apple (Gala or Fiji or one of equal sweetness)
3-5 carrots depending on size (the more you use the sweeter the juice will taste)
3-5 stalks of celery
Optional add ins:
Beets (with greens)
Lettuce (Romaine, red leaf or green leaf)
**All ORGANIC Ingredients**
What's your favorite juice recipe?
I have found that I crave green juice on the days I do not make it. I also have more energy and a better mood when I drink it. I feel it gives me more energy than a cup of coffee or tea. Try serving your delicious Green Green Juice with my favorite eco-friendly stainless steel straws!
