The Best Green Juice
Just about as energising as a cup of coffee with none of the letdown, green juice is an incredibly healthy, invigorating way to start your day.
Kale is among the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet. It’s full of calcium, and packed with Vitamins A, B, C, and K, as well as antioxidants, and phytonutrients.
Between all of these things, the leafy green reduces dark circles, promotes collagen production, increases cell turnover, prevents free-radical damage, and help detoxifies body and skin.
When juiced with a bit of lemon, apple and ginger and a tiny hit of refreshing mint, it turns into a sort of grassy lemonade. No worries if you don't have a juicer: a blender and a strainer do the trick.
5 large leaves of kale, ribs discarded, leaves roughly chopped
1 lemon, zest and pith removed
1 large apple, roughly chopped
A 2.5cm piece of fresh ginger
1 sprig of fresh mint
Push all the ingredients through your juicer. Alternatively, you can chop all the ingredients and pop them into a powerful blender with 120ml of water, then pass the mixture through a fine-mesh strainer and drink immediately.
