Three Little Juices
- 5 Comments
Matthew Kenney in his book, Everyday Raw writes of his Sweet Green Juice: “Green juice is simply one of the finest things you can offer your body.” It really feels that way when you drink it – and for that matter – when you drink any other fresh fruit and vegetable juice. They just taste healthy! Some of them even give you a natural boost or buzz. They’re great for starting the day or for a mid-afternoon refresher. I’ve picked three of my favorites to share here.
The mint in our garden took a beating this summer, but came back with a vengeance this fall. A couple of handfuls of it went in to making this bright-flavored green juice. I love the peppery heat of the fresh ginger.
Sweet Green Juice
2 apples (I quarter and core first)
1/2 cup parsley
1/2 cup mint
2 stalks celery
1 inch piece of ginger
1 lemon, peeled
Run all of the ingredients through a juicer and serve immediately.
The beet-apple-celery combo is a classic, though I’d never tried it until my sister suggested it. I’m not a big beet fan and at first was reluctant to even try a juice that included beets, but it’s fantastic. The vibrant purple-red color is simply beautiful.
2 large beets, quartered
3 apples, quartered and cored (I used 2 Fujis and 1 Gala)
2 stalks celery
1 lime, peeled
4 stalks kale
Place all ingredients in a juicer.
This bright flavors of this grapefruit-based juice will definitely wake you up, get you focused and clear your head – and probably your sinuses.
3 grapefruits, peeled
2 apples (I quarter and core; use sweet apples)
2 limes, peeled
3 stalks kale
Put all ingredients through a juicer, divide between two glasses and serve.
