Green Goddess Detox Juice combines cucumber, green apple, lemon, and ginger for a refreshing juice to hydrate and cleanse the body!
JUICE LOVERS UNITE!
Few weeks ago, my sister gave me one of the extra juicers she had lying around, and ever since then, I’ve been on a juicing frenzy! I juice so often now I have it down to a routine – I can assemble and disassemble the machine, clean up, and have a glass of fresh juice ready in under ten minutes! Starting out with juices I know I love – like carrot, apple, and pineapple – I have since since ventured into the “green” juices territory.
This version, which I call Green Goddess Detox Juice, gets its natural green hue thanks to the fresh cucumber (organic is best if you are keeping the peel on). Paired with naturally sweet apple, a splash of lemon juice, plus a touch of ginger to give it a nice zing, this juice tastes as refreshing and wonderful as it will make you feel.
Everything goes into the juice chute except for lemon. I’ve tried juicing lemon wedges with pith and peel, and it tastes too bitter for my taste. Instead, I use a citrus squeezer to extract the juice.
