Green Garden Juice

Glorious Green Goodness




 

 

This is the favorite on the Appleseed Cafe menu, as the Granny Smith apple adds just enough sweet and tart flavor to the green vegetables without too much sugar. The options are not just for flavor, but also added health benefits. People avoiding sugar frequently leave out the apple (and beet), and use the garlic, ginger, and lemon for added flavor.

   

 

Half of one large cucumber
One Granny Smith apple
6-8 stalks of parsley
3-4 stalks of chard (or kale)
2-3 ounces of spinach
3-4 stalks of celery
Options: (one or all) clove of garlic,
1/4 beet, fingertip of ginger, tbsp.
lemon juice

Juicing tip from the Cafe:
Start with the juiciest produce (like cucumber), then the leafy items, and the most fibrous items last (like celery) to avoid clogging the screen on your juicer.
