Makes approximately 2 12-ounce servings of fresh juice.
- 2 small heads of bok choy (or 1 large head)
- 10 dandelion greens (leaves and stems)
- 1 lemongrass stem
- 1 lemon (peeled)
- 1 cucumber (remove the skin if it’s not organic)
- 1-inch piece of ginger (peeled)
- 1/2 pineapple (outer skin and top removed)
Wash and prepare your ingredients. Turn on your juicer to the slowest setting and juice the bok choy and dandelion greens first. Then, turn up the setting a level to juice the lemon. Lastly, turn up the setting again and juice the pineapple, ginger, lemongrass, and cucumber.
Give the juice a good stir and serve immediately. I always add a few ice cubes to my juice to make it a little cooler.
Please note: You can store this juice for up to 24 hours. Pour it into an airtight container, leaving as little airspace as possible to reduce oxidation, and store it in the refrigerator. Mason jars and lids work really well for this.
