GREEN GINGER & APPLE JUICE

Green Juice

Another day, another juice recipe! I’ve always been in awe of the beautiful green juices that you see flooded over the internet, or stacked on the shelves of cafes. So, inspired by these creations, I decided to make my own! This one packs in apples, kale, spinach, celery, cucumber, ginger and lime. The green vegetables create the wonderfully vibrant colour of the juice, and the apples give it some sweetness. I added in ginger to give the drink a nice heat that lightly hits the back of your throat when you drink it, and leave you feeling great. I also stirred in some Moringa powder for an extra superfood kick, which I got from Ankh Rah. You could use any superfood power you like, if you’re looking for an extra boost – or you can simply leave it out, as the juice is delicious as it is. If you’re adding a powder, I suggest whisking it in, or quickly blasting the juice in a blender so that you don’t get any lumps of the powder floating around.
