Delicious and Detoxifying Green Juice Recipe


Inspired by my favourite Super-Greens juice at Wagamama,
here is my recipe for a delicious and detoxifying green juice. 

Ingredients
3 green apples
1/3 cucumber
4 stalks celery
1 lime
handful of mint 

Directions
Wash ingredients well
Peel Lime
Put all ingredients through the juicer
Enjoy



Benefits

This juice is light and refreshing and full of detoxifying ingredients.

Green Apples - high in fiber and keep the digestive tract clean and healthy
Cucumber - hydrating, rich in anti-oxidants and help you maintain a healthy weight
Celery - aids digestion, regulates your bodies alkaline balance and lowers blood pressure
Lime - rich in vitamin C, aids digestion, aids weight-loss
Mint - rich in anti-oxidants, relieves indigestion, prevents allergies and asthma  

If you're not keen on the idea of green-juicing, I totally recommend trying this one to ease you in. It was the first vegetable-juice which I tried and now I'm much more adventurous with my juice cocktails.
