Sunday detox elixir

I call this juice recipe my ‘Sunday detox elixir’ because sometimes the weekend’s festivities leave us feeling in need of a little reset when Sunday rolls around. The good news is, despite its name, you can have this juice anytime you’re feeling ready for a reboot. This juice is as green as green juices get and it will leave you feeling naturally energized and ready to take on the week.

Chlorophyl will be pumping through your veins in no time when you take a sip of this delicious and alkaline juice. If you can, try to use all organic produce. Wash your produce thoroughly; and drink your juice soon after you make it, the goal is to consume it while it is as fresh as possible.

Directions:

Juice your produce according to your juicer’s manufacturer’s instructions. I have a cold-press juicer and I find it is best to chop everything up fairly small, and to mix up the order that you juice the produce in. For example, don’t juice all of the kale, then all of the celery, then all of the parsley…juice a little bit of each and make sure to mix it up, this ensures a great flavor.

Enjoy with ice or without!
