Green Smoothies You'll Love
The Best Green Juice
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 2 cups kale or spinach
- 1 green apple cored and cut into chunks
- 1 cup pineapple fresh or canned with no sugar added
- 1/2 cup parsley leaves
- 1 tablespoon chopped mint
- 1 medium cucumber quartered
- 2 celery stalks roughly chopped
- 1 inch piece of ginger peeled
- Juice from 1 lemon
- Wash all vegetables and fruits well. Add water to the blender jug then add the rest of the ingredients. Blend on the highest setting for at least one minute, until completely combined and is similar to a smoothie consistency.
- To separate the juice from the pulp, place a nut milk bag or fine mesh seive over a large glass measuring bowl (I use an 8 cup glass measuring bowl). Pour the juice milk mixture into the bowl through the nut milk bag, squeezing the mixture through the bag so all of the liquid and pulp is separated. Reserve the pulp to put in muffins or crackers.
- Drink immediately or place in a sealed glass jar in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Shake well before drinking. This recipe doubles well.
