You don’t need an expensive juicer to reap the benefits of fresh green juice. Provided you have a blender and a nut milk bag (or even a good piece of cheesecloth), you can make your own green juice concoctions. Here’s a favourite of mine to get you started.
Prep: 7 mins
- 60 g (2 oz) spinach
- 2 apples
- 1 cucumber
- 2.5-cm (1-inch) piece of fresh ginger
- 250 ml (9 fl oz) water
- A few drops of liquid stevia (optional)
Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Strain through the nut milk bag or cheesecloth and serve. If desired, garnish with a cucumber slice.
