After watching the brilliant documentary Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead by Joe Cross I started a juice reboot. Just to get a boost of nutrients and if possible to lose a couple of pounds although thats not my main goal. I urge you to watch the documentary its very good.
After making many different juices since I bought my juicer back in October 2012 I thought I’d do a few posts letting you know some of my favourite ones. Today’s juice is what I tend to have in the morning. It gives me a boost of energy and is very filling.
First up I am going to show you what I add to my Mean Green Juice <—– This recipe is by Joe Cross but I’ve adapted mine a little from his.
With all these juices you can change them to best suit your tastes. I add Spinach to mine and also a carrot or two and sometimes I even add pear. I try to put as many fruits / vegetables in as possible.
I have adapted my Green Juice to include –
– Half a cucumber
– 1 Carrot
– 1 Stick of celery
– 2 Apples
– 2 Pears
– A slice of lemon
– Large Handful of spinach
– Large Handful of kale
Wash all your fruit & veg before juicing. I always put ice cubes in my glass as I think it tastes a lot better served ice cold.
As I said you don’t need to follow the recipe exactly. I use whatever I have in and I like to put alot of Apples & Pears in as I like my juices to taste quite sweet. I have a few more juices to share with you so look out for those.
Do you make Green Juice? I’d love to hear what fruit / veg you add to yours.
