Groovy Green Detox Juice
Loving your liver
Our next Detoxing event is 23rd January
Many green detoxing juices are purported to be good for your liver and given the sheer amount of vitamins minerals and calcium they have, that may be true. But the taste of many green detoxing juices let alone their aroma are about as appealing as sniffing the inside of my son’s rugby bag!
My clever green combination catches almost everything beneficial that these kings of green fruit and veg can give for your liver without compromising on taste AND aroma. The celery and mint bring additional layers of flavour against the strong greens and the lime juice cleanses the palette, whilst administering an extra dose of vitamins.
4 savoy cabbage leaves remove the tough core or use Kale (it has a stronger taste)
2 celery sticks (these should be a pale emerald colour NOT yellowy which has a sour flavour)
2 sharp tasting green apples
¼ broccoli spear
½ fresh lime (remove pips and peel off slithers of rind to decorate glass)
1 small handful of fresh mint
Blitz through a juice extractor
Serve in a small glass with a sprig of mint and rind of lime to the side.
Best consumed within 3 days and kept in the fridge. Or freeze
Consider freezing small quantities of left over juice in an ice cube tray. A few cubes make flavoursome additions to other juice drinks, soups, sauces and gravies!
Remove pips, pith, cores and woody stems from fruit and veg before juicing. The left over pulp can be added to breads and cakes for extra natural fibre.
