My Favorite Green Juice

Have a juicer? Try this one out. This juice, spinach tastes mild and the cilantro, has an interesting yet surprisingly fresh taste. Lemon and ginger add zing and zest, and the cucumber adds mineral-rich water. Apples are naturally sweet so we don’t add any additional sugar or fruit. If you find the juice too tart, consider pushing a couple carrots or an extra apple through the juicer. If you’re sensitive to ginger’s warming/spicy quality, add a smaller amount at first and go from there.

Makes approximately two servings

YOU WILL NEED

2 cups packed baby spinach leaves

Handful parsley leaves and stems

1 medium green apple, rinsed with core removed

1 large seedless (hothouse or English) cucumber, rinsed

1-inch length piece fresh ginger, scrubbed clean

1 medium lemon

 

DIRECTIONS

PREP THE VEGGIES

Chop the apple, cucumber and ginger into thin pieces small enough to easily go through the juicer.

Cut away the yellow peel from the lemon, leaving most of the white pith and lemon flesh. Cut into slices and remove any seeds.

MAKE YOUR JUICE

Reserve about half of the lemon. Turn the juicer on and push everything through, alternating between the greens and the firmer cucumber, apple and lemon. When everything but the reserved lemon has been juiced, stir the juice and taste for tartness. Add the remaining lemon if you feel it can take it. Or if the juice is too tart, consider adding a couple scrubbed unpeeled carrots or another cored apple.
