There’s something I love about starting my day with a green juice. I would love to turn this into a morning ritual, but I hate cleaning my juicer. So if you have an easy to clean juice, please let me know!
I always have kale and citrus (lemons, limes and calamansi) popping out of my garden. Cucumbers are coming in stronger, but I still end up buying them from Costco.
This is generally my default juice recipe because of what I readily have on hand. If you don’t have cucumbers, you can use celery. They’re both watery vegetables.
- 1 large cucumber, ends removed. Skin peeled if not organic
- 1 lime, rind removed
- 1 2 in piece of ginger
- 1 2 in piece of turmeric
- 1 small Granny Smith apple, cored
- 2 cups kale
- Send the produce through your juicer and enjoy! I always like to add a couple of ice cubes to my juice to make it cold.
- If you're new to juicing, this might be too strong for you. You can always add another apple and lime.
