Green Juice Detox Recipe

Feel like you indulged a little too much over the holidays? Good, because you should have! It’s the holidays and it’s the one time of year that you should be indulging and enjoying good food and drinks with your family and friends without feeling guilty.

But alas, after too many days of indulging, and with that post-holiday bloat and sugar crash kicking in full force you might be wanting to get back on track and re-set your system even before the new year rolls around. There’s no better way to not only detox from the holidays, but also get a head-start on those healthy eating resolutions than with a great green juice. This is by far my fav green recipe that’s energizing, refreshing, full of nutrients and antioxidants, and tastes super yums.

Ingredients:
– 5 large leaves of kale, ribs removed
– handful of spinach
– 1 cucumber
– 1-2 ribs of celery
– 1 lemon, peeled
– 1 apple
– 1 inch knob of ginger, peeled
– 1 sprig of fresh mint

Throw everything into your juicer and enjoy. No juicer? No problem. Chop up all of the ingredients and throw them into a blender with 2/3 of a cup of water, blend, then strain through a fine mesh strainer and drink up!

No juicer or blender? Grab a fresh juice at your local juice bar or pick up a bottle at your local grocery store – Suja or Blueprint are my top picks.
