Instant Energy: Cleansing Green Juice Recipe

Ingredients

  • 2 cups packed red kale leaves tough stems removed
  • 1 cup packed spinach leaves
  • 1 large sweet apple I used Gala
  • 1 tablespoon chopped ginger
  • 1 small lemon
  • 1/2 - 1 cup coconut water
  • 1 cup cold water

Instructions

  1. Quarter the lemon, remove seeds, peel and set aside.
  2. Chop apple, remove seeds and set aside.
  3. Add the cold water to a powerful blender, followed by the kale, spinach, apple, lemon and ginger.
  4. Pulse to break down the ingredients.
  5. Blend on high until smooth, adding coconut water as needed to liquefy the ingredients. (I used about 3/4 cup).
  6. Pour the juice through a fine mesh strainer a little at a time. Use the back of a spoon to press the juice out of the pulp. Discard pulp and repeat until all the juice is strained.
  7. Rinse the strainer and pour all of the juice back through it one last time.
  8. Serve immediately or cover and store in the refrigerator for up to 48 hours.
