Green juice is one of my favorite beverages.
While I usually enjoy a darker juice with lots of carrots, sometimes I can feel my body needing more fresh greens.
I love the fresh taste of lemon in my juice, but it is important not to use too much, as it can become overpowering quickly.
When I first started out juicing, I used apples to sweeten pretty much every juice. I don’t usually use them as much now, and get my sweetness from carrots for the most part.
However, apples are a great addition to this juice. Important note: make sure to core your apple before running it through the juicer. Ingesting apple seeds can be toxic.
I love juice. I have worked myself up to being able to handle large quantities of juice, so I rarely make less than 20 ounces. This juice was made around 50 ounces. I was so excited to drink it, it was like Christmas!
I love how energized and alive I feel after I drink juice. There’s nothing that compares!
If you’re just starting out juicing, I would recommend halving this recipe or simply using : 1 heart romaine, 1 apple, 1 cucumber, 1/8 lemon.
Juice loses nutritional value after it is processed, so it is important to drink your juice immediately (ideally on an empty stomach), or if necessary, store in an airtight container (such as a mason jar).
