Are you ready to get greenyfied?
Welcome back to the blog! Today I am going to share one of my absolute go-to recipes, my daily green juice. I want to share it with you, because it is so simply and so easy to make. In my personal opinion, starting your day with fresh greens and liquid, is one of the best things you can do for your skin, health, happiness and energy levels.
While there is not much research on the subject yet, research suggests that eating greens on the daily can help reduce inflammation, heart-disease risk and age-related mental decline. There is also evidence that certain compounds in fresh juice can function as prebiotics, and prebiotics are related to healthy digestion, weight management and improved immune function (source). Simply put, it is also a very easy way to get in your daily dose of greens without having to chow down a giant bowl of salad!
While the juicing process can entail having a fancy juicer, going through pounds and pounds of fresh greens and vegetables, I wanted to make this recipe which is easy, simple and accesible for the average person with an average kitchen! Minimal dishes need to be cleaned!
If you haven't tried a green juice yet, and if the thought sounds unpleasent to you, please don't let it stop you. Because of the coconut water, this green juice has a pleasent and mild sweet taste that matches wonderfully with the earthy taste of the greens. Give it a try and let me know what you think!
- Wash the greens thoroughly. Juice the lemon. Add all the ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.
- Serve and drink fresh!
If you need more liquid, you can always add more coconut water! It stays good in the fridge for up to 2 days, but it is best drinked straight away for the taste and nutritional content.Want more?
