Ultimate Green Juice :)
makes about 16 ounces of juice in a Breville Ikon juicer
1 bunch of kale
1 bunch of spinach
3-4 stalks of celery and its leaves
1 piece of fruit: green apple, pear, or spear of fresh pineapple (base your choice on whatever is available to you as fresh and organic)
1 whole peeled lemon (save the peel for its zest!)
2-inch piece of ginger (use less if this is too spicy)
optional: half a hothouse or 2 Persian cucumbers
Wash everything and make sure they’re all dry. It’s great if the fruit comes straight out of the fridge so the juice is cold.
Send everything through the juicer one by one. I have no idea if this is important to the mechanics of the juicer, but I start with the “softest” vegetables like spinach first, and end with the ginger.
Stick your juice in the freezer for 10 minutes to chill it down before drinking it.
