Yummy Mummy Recipe: Green With Envy Juice

With cold & flu season upon us, it’s SO important that we take care of ourselves and stock up on all the nutrients we can. This week I decided to break out the juicer and try my hand at creating my own homemade juice. I went with a green juice loaded with vitamins. And the good news: I didn’t sprout bunny ears for trying all the good stuff! 😉 It’s delicious & refreshing- great served on ice with a sprinkle of pepper if you like a real clean flavour.
 

Yummy Mummy Recipe: Green With Envy Juice

Ingredients

1 bunch kale
4 stalks celery
2 cucumbers
3 lemons
3 green apples
1″ piece of ginger
 
Optional Ingredients:
 
– spinach
– lime
– carrots
 
Add all ingredients to juicer and power away! If you are lacking in the juicer department and have a blender or Bullet to work with, simply zest the lemon & core the apple before popping in. While you will be left with a thicker drink- more like a green smoothie- you’ll be keeping a lot more fibre that can be lost during juicing.
 
As with many things, juicing can be trial and error to find a combination you enjoy. My hubby found my juice to be a little tart, but I personally enjoy the zing from the lemon & green apple. Worst case scenario: pop your juice in the freezer- best to portion in ice cube trays- and keep on hand to add to smoothies or to use as flavour cubes in more successful juice recipes. (Psst- it’s also great to add to soup stock!)
