Who needs coffee when you can have this burst of green energy every morning? At Reboot, we fire up our Breville juicer and get the juices flowing first thing in the AM.
This green juice recipe is delicious and the perfect way to start your day – the addition of lemon and apple do just the trick to sweeten the greens. It’s a hit every time I make it. I’ve shared it with those who say, “Ew! What are you drinking and why is it green?”, and with the juicing veterans, and all seem to love it just the same. Drink it up and your body will thank you.
4 – 5 large kale leaves
1 large handful of spinach
3 romaine leaves
3 celery stalks
1 green apple
1 lemon, peeled (You can leave the peel on but it will taste very bitter)
1.) Wash the ingredients well.
2.) *Push all ingredients through your Breville Juicer and juice on!
*TIP: I find that you get more out of your leafy greens when you push them through with celery or cucumber. I add the kale leaves, and push it through with the cucumber. Next, the spinach leaves pushed through with the celery. The romaine goes in next easily on its own. Then the apple, followed by the lemon and voila! You now have your energy for the day.
*TIP: Depending on which greens look best to me at the store, I sometimes switch up the leafy greens and use collard greens and/or Swiss chard.
Healthy Benefits: Dark leafy greens are rich in chlorophyll, which is believed to have the power to regenerate, cleanse and Reboot your body at the most basic cellular level. Increasing your consumption of chlorophyll also increases the number of red blood cells in your body, improving how effectively your body absorbs and uses oxygen, and that makes you healthier!
