If Popeye were a foodie, this is what he'd drink.
I've been lusting for a juicer for over a year and last week I found one at Costco for $89.99. It was a Jack LaLanne Juicer ; sort of 90's looking but it had solid ratings, and a lifetime guarantee. Sold.
I took it home and started experimenting.
I wanted to figure out a way to make a delicious, low glycemic, and nutrient rich green juice. The most important thing was that it had to be delicious. I mean, truly tasty, not just, nutritionally speaking, "good for you". I started scouring recipes and come to find out, there are tons of them out there - even Martha Stewart has a green juice recipe.
The chef in me knew there needed to be layers of flavor and high quality ingredients involved for it to be a positive experience. I tasted as I juiced; mixing and matching all sorts of greens. Here is the recipe for the winning combination.
Let me know what you think!
makes 4 cups
12 oz bag of baby spinach
2 celery stalks
1 inch piece of ginger
16 oz unsweetened coconut water
1. Chill all ingredients (this juice tastes best nice and cold)
2. Juice cucumbers, spinach, and ginger (should be 2 cups of juice)
3. Squeeze Lemon Juice into the mixture
4. Add 16 oz coconut water
