Why not make this yourself a ‘Gorgeous Green Juice’
Packed full of anti- inflammatory, heart healthy and immune supporting nutrients including a good blast of those ‘B’ vitamins.
This juice not only tastes great but in addition will aid digestive transit too. Green drinks get their vibrant colour from chlorophyll, a nutrient-rich pigment found in all leafy vegetables such as spinach, kale, celery and lettuce, that cleans the body of harmful toxins, oxygenates the blood and helps boost energy levels.
Ingredients – try to use organic wherever possible
3/4 pint glass of water
1 handful of grated carrot
1 handful of kale
1 green apple, cored and chopped
1 pear, cored and chopped
Juice of half a lemon
1 piece of ginger (size according to taste)
3 sticks of celery
10 ice cubes
How to make
Add the water, carrot and spinach to the blender. Blend until smooth.
Then add the celery, apple and pear. Finally add the ginger, lemon juice and ice cubes and blend together.
