Green juices are a healthy way to sneak nutrients into your diet if you’ve been lazy on salads.

This juice is surprisingly filling and a good way to detoxify your body. It will also fill you with energy and is incredibly delicious!

 

 

Ingredients 

  • Granny smith apple, 2
  • Cucumber, 2/3
  • Fennel, 1 big slice
  • Kiwi, 1
  • Lime, 1
  • Ginger, 2 cm
  • Celery, 1 stalk
  • Spinach or Kale, a handful
  • Avocado (optional)

Procedure

In a slow juicer, start with one whole apple, then add the spinach (stems first), cucumber, fennel, lime, ginger, celery, and finish with the second apple.

In a blender, add the juice and the kiwi (and the avocado if you want to) with a couple of ice cubes. Blend until smooth.
