Reduce inflammation of the digestive system and alkalize your body with this refreshing, cleansing juice. Packed with greens to detoxify, hydrate and nourish your cells, it’s the perfect pick-me-up or kick-start to a healthy New Year!
Using a juicer, juice the following organic ingredients:
2-3 celery stalks, leaves removed
1 small cucumber
2 kale leaves
1 small lemon or lime peeled
1 green apple
Pour over ice and enjoy!
Why’s it’s good for you:
Celery provides protection against inflammation of the digestive tract, with just one cup meeting more than 1/3 of our daily need for vitamin K which is necessary for bone health and blood clotting.
Combine the following in your Juicer and enjoy! When you are done juicing the carrots try making Carrot Cake Bites with the pulp from the carrots.
4-5 large carrots
1 green apple
fresh ginger to taste
1 lime (with the peel removed)
Wondering what to do with the pulp after juicing your carrots?
Try making these no-bake Carrot Cake Bites!
1 1/2 cups of pulp from juicing carrots (or 1 1/2 cup finely grated carrots)
2 cups of nuts (almonds, walnuts and/or pecans)
1 cup of pitted dates
1 1/4 cup of unsweetened shredded coconut
1 tsp. Cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground Ginger
1/4 tsp. Nutmeg
1/4 tsp. Salt
Juice carrots until you have 1 1/2 cups of carrot pulp. Or if you do not have a juicer, finely grate carrots and use a paper towel to absorb the excess water from the carrots.
In a food processor, process the nuts and dates until paste-like. Add 1 cup of the coconut and the spices. Process until combined.
In a large bowl mix the nut mixture with the carrots.
Using a scoop or your hands, form dough into bite sized balls, then roll in remaining 1/4 cup of shredded coconut.
Chill for 30 minutes and enjoy a healthy snack that happens to also be gluten free and vegan.
