I haven’t always been a fan of green juices, mostly because it’s an acquired taste, but lately I’ve been giving it a try because I feel like my digestive system needed a boost. The best thing about a detox juice is that it has all the benefits blended into one. It’s simple and quick, but my issue has always been the high folate levels in green juices; folate is found in spinach and avocado, and it doesn’t always agree with me.
So the recipe below is a green juice for beginners, you don’t just jump onto the green juice frenzy, you ease into it.
- 1 small green apple
- 50 grams of sliced cucumber (or a handful)
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- 1/2 tbsp matcha powder (unsweetened)
- 1-2 cups of water
Tip: pass the juice through a strainer.
Other Ingredients you can add or substitute with:
- apple cider vinegar
The possibilities of a green juice are endless and effective if you need a cleanse for either weight loss or detox. The juice is one I make in the morning and before breakfast, I don’t usually have it every day, but if you’re trying out a detox week then this would be a good idea.
I hope you try it out and if you do please leave me a comment. Follow for more posts like this one and thank you for reading, xoxo.
