Zingy Ginger Green Juice

Makes a little over 1 liter of juice

Ingredients

  • 2 lemons, peel removed and chopped
  • 2 organic green apples, chopped
  • 1 organic cucumber, chopped
  • 1 head of organic kale
  • 2-3 inches of ginger root (add more ginger for more spice)
  • 3 cups water

Preparation

1. Using a high-speed blender, blend lemons, apples, cucumber, ginger, and water until thoroughly incorporated. Add in kale and blend on highest speed until greens are completely liquefied, about a minute or two.

2. Pour blended greens into a fine mesh strainer, nut-milk bag, or cheesecloth over a large bowl. Use your hands or a spatula to gently squeeze all the juice out of the green pulp.

3. Pour juice into a large glass jar and store in the refrigerator. Juice will keep 2-3 days. Enjoy!
