Description

Fresh vegetable juice is one of the best ways to get a flood of nutrition into your body almost instantly, with very little digestive effort needed from your body. But what if you don't have a juicer at home? You're in luck! Today’s recipe by Molly Patrick of Clean Food Dirty Girl will help you accomplish just that.

Ingredients

At a glance
1 cup water (235ml)
2 apples, cored and cut into chunks
1/2 cucumber, cut into quarters (take off the peel if it feels waxy)
1 carrot, cut into quarters
1 small beet or part of a big beet, cut into quarters
1/2 of a lime, peeled
Big handful of leafy greens
1/4 cup parsley (8g)
1/4 cup mint (8g)
1 small piece of ginger, about half the size of your thumb

Methods/steps

1. Place the water into your blender.

2. Wash and prep all of the ingredients and place them into a bowl (apple, cucumber, carrot, beet, leafy greens, parsley, mint and ginger).
 
3. Place the ingredients into your blender, a small handful at a time and blend between handfuls (if you have a powerful blender, like a Vitamix or a Blendtec, you can add all of your ingredients at once). Blend until all of the ingredients are nice and blended. The mixture will be thick.
 
4. Pour the mixture through a nut milk bag or paint strainer bag and squeeze all of the juice out of the bag (make sure you place a medium-sized bowl under the bag to catch the juice). Squeeze until the pulp is dry and there is no liquid left.
 
5. Transfer the juice to a glass and drink with a straw. You can save the pulp in your freezer for crackers, baking or to thicken soups if you like. Or you can add it to your compost.
 
This isn’t a science – you can play around with different combos and have fun with it!
