Green Ginger Beauty Lemonade Tonic
At first sight, this juice looks very green, but it is mild tasting and, dare I say, delicious (in a healthy way!). Both cleansing and fortifying, this tonic flushes and hydrates the system to grow beautiful skin, hair in inner glow.
The Romaine lettuce is mild and juicy, parsley rich with minerals and chlorophyll, cucumber full of silica for beautiful skin and hair, celery an ideal balance of potassium and sodium, ginger good to fire up digestion, and lemon full of vitamin C and electrolytes to hydrate the body. I prefer tart green apples, though any firm organic apple is welcome.
Yields: 2-4 servings
1 head Romaine lettuce
6 stalks celery
½ bunch parsley
2 organic green apples
1 inch fresh ginger
Wash all of the produce. Separate the Romaine and cut the bottom stem into pieces that will easily fit through the juicer. Cut the cucumber into quarters lengthwise. Cut the apples into sections that will fit through the juicer. No need to remove the seeds if they are organic.
Juice all ingredients in a vegetable juicer, alternating for easy processing.
Drink as fresh as possible.
The nutrients in fresh juice are delicate and deteriorate with time. For maximum benefits, drink on the spot as it does not store well.
