This is one of my absolute favorite green juice recipes. It’s crisp, refreshing, and perfect for the warmer months! It has a lot of cucumber in it, which is great for hydration and for skin, and the addition of mint and basil gives it a delicious fresh flavor. To add some dark leafy greens, I use spinach in this recipe because it has a smoother and more subtle taste than other greens. The lime and ginger give it a tangy kick. Trust me on this one – it’s going to become your new favorite juice!
Makes about 16 oz juice, depending on juicer / produce size.
- 1 green apple
- 1 lime
- 1 cucumber
- 2 cups spinach
- 1/2 cup basil
- ¼ cup fresh mint leaves
- 1 inch piece of ginger
Add all ingredients to your juicer, and enjoy! (This could probably be made as a smoothie in a blender too, although I’ve never tried it that way. If you make it as a smoothie, I’d recommend adding a small piece of avocado for creaminess).
