apple 1 medium sized
beet 1 medium sized
carrots 2 medium sized
cucumber 1 medium
spinach 1 handful
lime half of one or 1
ginger 2" piece
water 1 cup or less
- I prefer to blanch the spinach in hot water and salt for 10 minutes.But you can always add it fresh.
- Wash and peel the carrots,beets,apples,cucumber.(peeling is individual preference,you can add just like that too).
- Chop them small.Add beets,ginger and carrots to juicer or blender and blend until crushed fine,then add in chopped apples,cucumber,spinach leaves and lime.Add a cup of water to blend it fine.
- Strain the juice and enjoy !!
* Straining the juice discards the fiber so if you wish can drink it just like that without straining.
* If you don't have cucumber or spinach then omit and make with the rest.Works fine.
* There is no fixed quantity as such to make this juice.You can always increase the beets ,carrots or apples as per your preference.We do it this way and it tastes good.
