juice boost

My Sweetheart wasn’t feeling well last week, so in an attempt to help him feel better (and boost my own immune system as well!) I  made a huge pot of chicken noodle soup and a few big batches of green juice. Juicing is a lot of fun and there’s just something so refreshing about a tall, cold glass of fresh green juice.

Here’s my (current) favorite green juice recipe (serves 2):

  • 2 apples
  • 2 lemons
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 1/2 – 2 celery stalks
  • Lots of kale!

But really, you can play around and try any number of combinations depending on what you have.  For me, the essential ingredients for a yummy green juice are the apples and the lemons.  They make a really good base, provide a lot of juice, and also make it taste kind of like a really healthy lemonade.

Happy juicing!
