If you love a big glass of green juice to start your day, then good for you! You're already on the right path to getting unrefined nutrients right to your system in one of the healthiest, easiest ways possible. For a lot of people though, green drank has a stigma for tasting like straight up soccer turf. And it doesn't have to!
In the spirit of honesty, I've made some pretty disgusting green juices. Its all about balance here, people- and this drink has it! It'll make anyone who currently doesn't love green juice, LOVE GREEN JUICE! The apple and pear add some sweetness and the lemon gives it a great citrus kick that cancels out the bitterness of the kale. The celery is more a filler, and since its sweet, it aids in balancing out the sour of the lemon. Plus, celery is water-packed and hydrating, and a great way to sneak in some extra H2O. Not only will this juice nourish you and hydrate you, but it'll make your skin glow and help with digestion. A triple threat! Go get your juicer out, its time to get cozy with kale.
INGREDIENTS 1 small bunch of kale (about 1 packed cup)
4 celery stalks
Wash all the produce, then removes the cores from the apple and pear, remove the peel of the lemon, and trim the celery stalks. Run all your veggies through a high-powered juicer (or if you're REALLY fancy, a slow juicer- my dream!) and into a clean glass cup. Drink up! This recipe easily doubles or triples for sharing or making your juice a day ahead. Juice last up to 3 days in an airtight container in the fridge.
