15 Minute Spa Meals: Vibrant Green Juice

January 7, 2013

I wanted to share a green juice recipe I always love to try and enjoy often this time of year.  It’s brimming with all sorts of goodies–enzymes, chlorophyll (a powerful detoxifier), vitamins, and trace minerals.  As with all green juices, it’s best enjoyed first thing in the morning for maximum benefit.

Vibrant Green Juice
Serving Size: 1 (16 ounces)
Ingredients
1 medium cucumber, quartered
2 green apples, quartered
1 lemon (I recommend removing the peel)
1-inch piece fresh ginger
1 big handful of baby spinach
2-3 curly green kale leaves
1/3 bunch fresh mint

This sounds amazing, Noelle! It sort of reminds me of the Green Carrot Juice recipe over at juicingforweightlossguide.com which is delicious.

I just recently started juicing and found a ton of good information and recipes over there. Now I am having a Green Carrot Juice for breakfast each morning and it seems to have really improved my energy throughout the day and stave off cravings.

I'm always looking for new juicing recipes to try though. So thank you for this one. I'm going to try it tomorrow morning and see how it is.
