From the Be Well Kitchen – “Mojito” Green Juice
August 09

Mojito Green Juice
By Be Well Health Coach Jenny Sansouci

This is one of my absolute favorite green juice recipes. It’s crisp, refreshing, and perfect for the warmer months! It has a lot of cucumber in it, which is great for hydration and for skin, and the addition of mint and basil gives it a delicious fresh flavor. To add some dark leafy greens, I use spinach in this recipe because it has a smoother and more subtle taste than other greens. The lime and ginger give it a tangy kick. Trust me on this one – it’s going to become your new favorite juice!

Makes about 16 oz juice, depending on juicer / produce size.

Ingredients

  • 1 green apple
  • 1 lime
  • 1 cucumber
  • 2 cups spinach
  • 1/2 cup basil
  • ¼ cup fresh mint leaves
  • 1 inch piece of ginger

Directions

Add all ingredients to your juicer, and enjoy! (This could probably be made as a smoothie in a blender too, although I’ve never tried it that way. If you make it as a smoothie, I’d recommend adding a small piece of avocado for creaminess).

    My daily favorite green juice is ginger, lemon, romaine, spinach, cucumber, celery and a bit of carrot to sweeten. It makes me feel so alive and incredibly well-balanced. I’ve got to try this recipe for the Mojito version though- it sounds delish!:)
