Strawberry Greens Juice

I’m trying very hard to mix up my vegetables on my seven day juice fast – I could have three liters of juice with 6lbs of carrots a day if I’m not careful… I don’t want to turn orange : )

So my basic plan has been to have one liter based on carrots, one on greens or yellows, and one on reds (damn addiction to virgin mary juice!). I also want to add in some watermelon today but I’m not very interested in hauling one back from the market on my own two feet so will see how that transpires.

Anyhoo… back to my totally delish green juice from yesterday…

Ingredients (makes 1 liter)

  • 1 large cucumber
  • 2 large organic* red apples
  • Half bunch kale
  • 16oz (large punnet) organic strawberries* with their tops on

Instructions

  • Juice everything – if you have a cold-press juicer try alternating the strawberries between the other ingredients to move them through more efficiently; I find that if I do them all at once, I get a lot of strawberry pulp caught in the mesh.

* I buy almost everything organic, although sometimes have to compromise on ginger, pineapple and watermelon as they can be harder to get. However, strawberries and apples are the two fruits most impacted by pesticides so I strongly urge you to always buy organic, especially when juice fasting as the toxins will be absorbed even more quickly.
