Super Green Juice

Super Green Juice Recipe

Everyone should have a green juice recipe in their repertoire, and this one is a ringer. Its heart and soul is straight green, not at all sweet, with a good amount of lemon-lime tang, and invigorating ginger lift. Like many green juices, it makes you sing from the inside, and is reason enough to invest in a juicer, or dust one off.
Green Juice Recipe
When I traveled to Paris last year, I spent a beautiful first day and night there, then came down with a (particularly miserable) cold - throat on fire, raspy cough. Being sick away from home is hard, being sick in a city like Paris, when you're there for just a short time, is spiritually deflating. So, in preparation for my most recent trip, I became a vigilant hand-washing, snotty three-year avoiding, soup eating individual with a juicer on the counter.

I religiously drank a glass of this green juice every day, punctuated with a gingery version of this turmeric tea a few times along the way. It's a variation on one of the (many) green juices highlighted in Pressed Juicery's Juice: Recipes for Juicing, Cleansing, and Living Well, a book I purchased recently, before realizing we share the same editor!Green Juice Recipe
Juicing can be time intensive. I think that is why so many people are inclined to purchase fresh juices instead of making them at home. Quite honestly, I do both. There are stretches when I don't get around to making fresh juice, and other times I make it regularly. I like how fresh juice makes me feel.

Simplifying Green Juice 

- Wash, trim, and prepare your produce when you come home from the market. Then refrigerate. This way, it's straight into the juicer when you're ready.

- Make more then you need in one go. Certainly, fresh, immediate juice is the best. That said, I make a three day supply, and keep it refrigerated (you can even freeze it). And it's good. With this juice in particular, you can use it as a soup broth, I even used it to make dumpling wrappers in place of water.

- Clean up as soon as you're finished.Green Juice Recipe

Keep in mind, this is a juicer recipe, not a blender/smoothie.
