the tastiest green detox juice

recipe  18th March 2016 by

Not too sweet but not too bland, this nutrient packed potion will deliver a plethora of goodness thanks to it’s trio of cruciferous vegetables; broccoli, kale and watercress which are famous in the cleansing world for their ability to aid detoxing.

This little green guru is one of my ultimate favourite green juices. The power of food blows my mind, and when you juice it, you can get such amazing healthy side effects as it really dumps a whole lot of goodness straight into your blood stream within minutes rather than hours.

If you’re new to juicing then you’ll want to add more fruit than I have included in this recipe since you may not be familiar with the green juice taste but you’ll grow to adore it, I promise. Especially after how good it will make you feel!

ingredients

  • 1 handful spinach
  • stem broccoli
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 handful watercress
  • 2 pears
  • 10 torn mint leaves
  • 12 lemon
  • 1 tbsp peeled and grated ginger

instructions

Chop your ingredients into chunk so that they fit through the funnel of your juicer with ease.

Add all the ingredients, one by one into your juicer.

Depending on the make of your juicer and how powerful the motor and blades are, you may need to interchange between your more fibrous greens and then a bit of pear or cucumber. Being more watery, they’ll help to push the spinach through without getting a traffic jam in your juicer!

Add a couple of ice cubes to your jar/glass and pour the juice and enjoy every sip!

If you have any leftover or you want to enjoy half now and half later on then store it the fridge in an airtight container or in a glass filled as closely to the top and cover it with cling film to reduce the oxidation.
