You know those days… you feeling a little bit blah, your missing your normal sparkle and just want a little bit more oomph? thats when I know its time for my green juice. I freaking love green juices..my body just cant get enough of them! kale, spinach, pineapple, mint, cucumber, celery, green apple, parsley, silver beet .. I just love them all so much! and when they are all in one delicious place with a splash of fresh lemon juice, I just know my organs are as happy as I am!
I know green juices are not for everyone, but there is a couple tricks to make them so much more delicious:
1. The Magic of Lemon! Lemon and greens go together like salt and chocolate- it just works. The zestyness of the lemon pairs so perfectly that your tastebuds dance, your tummy smiles and everything is just that little bit brighter! I promise add that splash of fresh lemon juice and your green juice is turn from good to out of this world!
2. Cool it Down! I love adding ice to my cold pressed juices – not only does it make the juice just that little bit more refreshing it also can help down play ‘the green’ in that green juice.
3. Make it Yourself! When out and about it might seem like a great idea just to pick up a juice, but more often than not your green juice will be 95% apple (or fruit) and 4% green and 1% ice – sure it will taste scrumptious and sweet but not quite what your body was after. Plus its just that little bit more satisfying knowing you made it your self.
Here is my go to green juice smoothie, it has converted a couple of people into green juice lovers!

I N G R E D I E N T S
1 green apple, quartered
1 – 2 ripe lemons, skin removed
1 whole cucumber
3 sticks of celery
1/3 – 1/2 bunch of silver beet
Ice to serve
M E TH O D
1. Run all ingredients through a cold pressed juicer (or speak to your local cafe and create your own juice there)
2. Serve with ice and enjoy straight away!
note: when enjoying a juice, fresh is always best! as soon as the veggies have been through the machine they can start to oxidate – cold pressed juices slow down this oxidative process as it is more gentle on the produce but still – fresh is best.
