I know, I know Green Juice is all the rave. To be honest I prefer drinking Green Smoothies over juice as they contain the fiber from the vegetables too. That being said I love a cold glass of this smooth green juice. There are times where I can feel my body needs a light meal or extra burst of healthy goodness. On those occasions I gravitate towards this drink! One of my least favorite parts of your average juice drink is all the sugar from fruit makes my head spin. My recipe is low carb and skips all the sweet stuff. If you prefer a little sweetness to your juice add 1/2 of your favorite apple to the mix.
3-5 handfuls baby spinach
3-5 sprigs fresh parsley, ends trimmed and coarsely chopped
1 medium cucumber, chopped into 1/2 inch pieces
2 stalks celery, chopped into 1/2 inch pieces
1 green bell pepper, chopped into 1/2 inch pieces
Optional add in's: cayenne pepper, turmeric, lemon, ginger or a dash of sea salt
1. Juice all ingredients except optional add-ins. Sprinkle add-ins on top and serve immediately or refrigerate in an air-tight container no more than 24 hours before consuming.
I've tried saving the juice pulp and mixing it into a cracker recipe or guacamole. To be honest they were both gag-worthy. If you find a good way of using the healthy pulp leftover from this juice please comment below.
