Detox is always the buzz word around this time of year. I have been craving lots of cool veggies with the warmer weather here in Florida. This morning I started my day off with a big glass of refreshing greens, sweetened with an apple and a hint of mint and ginger 🙂 This creation is loaded with kale (an excellent source of antioxidant vitamins A, C and K, calcium, and many more), broccoli, spinach (move over Popeye!), and some other ingredients to give it a little zing! Put a little “pep” in your step with this delicious juicy juice!
(use organic produce when possible)
1 cucumber (cut into 4 pieces)
handful of baby spinach
1 carrot (peeled and cut into 4 pieces)
1 apple, quartered (I prefer granny smith or gala)
1/4 inch sliver of fresh ginger
2 sprigs of fresh mint
2 sprigs of fresh parsley
Fill blender with 4 ounces of filtered water. Add all ingredients. Add a handful of ice and a little more water. Blend until smooth. I use a Blendtec so I just press the “juice” button. Sip and enjoy!!!
