Still having my juice a day, for that extra nutrient blast! Wanted to go for bitters and fabulous organic stuff that is good for the digestion.
I have been juicing for a while and I have built up the intensity of greens I can take. If you have just pulled your new juicer out of the box do not start with this one! Have a look at my other lighter recipes and certainly do not juice garlic. I would even recommend diluting this with some water kefir or natural mineral water if it is your first green veg juice. Also sip the juice, take your time enjoy.
Intense Juice packed with flavour!
- Two large pak choi leaves
- Four or five kale leaves and stalks
- Four catalogna leaves
- Three red cabbage leaves
- Half a pointed red pepper
- Two stalks of celery
- One green apple
- A nub of turmeric (as thick as tip of your baby finger)
- Half a lemon
- A slice of ginger ( half cm thick)
- Optional: one small clove of garlic
- Optional: A dash of water kefir
As I said this is Intense! If you think your palette or your system is not ready for it yet you can A: reduce the green leaves by half B: Dilute the juice. C: Come back to it another time 🙂
The catalogna are bitter green leaves, “bitters” stimulate the digestion. All the greens are filled with energising chlorophyll. The cabbage’s red colouring is an antioxidant. Along with the greens it is a massive source of vitamin K. This juice gives an intense hit of B vitamins, vitamin C, glutamine,potassium, the enzyme superoxide dismutase with a massive etc. The addition of the lemon, turmeric, ginger and garlic gives it anti-inflammatory,antibacterial and extra anti-oxidant properties. It also does taste lovely!
P.S. Even the pulp is amazing looking!
