Wintergreen Juice

Chilly outdoors and a cozy inside is what this time of year is all about here in New England!  Warming up with tea or soup is always welcome, but even cooler beverages like juice can feel warming, when made with certain ingredients.  I love adding in seasonal vegetables and fresh herbs and spices to add nutrients, flavor and warmth.  Good for skin, immunity and energy, simple juices can offer many benefits. This juice is lower in sugar, making it a healthy choice for those with diabetes or looking to cut sugar intake.  To make this juice thyroid-friendly see the substitution list below.


  • 1/4 green cabbage
  • 6 romaine (cos) lettuce leaves
  • ½ cucumber
  • 1 in (2.5 cm) piece of ginger
  • 4 sprigs fresh mint
  • 1 pear


  1. Wash all produce well.
  2. Slice cabbage into wedge that will fit into juicer chute.
  3. Keep stems on mint when juicing – wrap around cucumber
  4. Juice all ingredients
  5. Enjoy!
