Green Juice

Yum! And soooo good for you 🙂

Hi Guys,

 

So I love a good green juice. However unlike my darling hubby i need it to be really smooth to be able to drink them! He could pretty much drink them when there so thick you need a spoon… Anyway I always make sure mine are really smooth and thinned out with the water. Good way to get a good cup of water in too 🙂

 

This is one a friend told me the other night so i am “borrowing it” for now! Miss Ruby who is almost 5 loves this and we have had it each day for the past few days. She even asked for a second one today. Mr Jasper (2) not as convinced…yet!

 

I love this recipe as it’s really simple and you can just do enough for one. For two or more just double this recipe. I have been doubling it the last couple of days 🙂 You could also switch the Kale for some baby spinach if you prefer.

 

All the ingredients all ready to go.

FOR ONE SERVE – 

INGREDIENTS 

1/2 Green Apple (Cored)

4 Strawberries (Washed and you can leave the tops on!)

1 Leaf of Kale (I usually take the stalk off.)

1/2 glass of Ice

1/2 Glass of Cold Water (Use the glass that you will serve it in. Or roughly 160g.)

 

METHOD:

1. Place all the ingredients EXCEPT the water into the TM bowl and blitz on speed 9 for 45 seconds.

2. Once it reaches 45 seconds without stopping the TM pour the water onto the lid and let it drizzle in. Continue to mix on speed 9 until it roughly reaches 1 minute in total.

3. Serve and drink immediately.

    Sounds delicious! Just wondering what difference it makes adding the water at the end? I always add the water with everything else at the start.

      Hi Trace, I like mine really fine so this helps to really blitz it up fine first and then add the water. I guess I am used to doing it this way as another one I do I like to use mint and ginger so i want to really blitz those sorts of ingredients first. If it works for you there is no right and wrong way though 🙂 I love seeing how everyone does things there own little way !!

    The ice crushed the other ingreidents making for a smoother juice

    What a lovely way to start the day! I wouldn’t have thought of putting kale in my smoothie (always thought you needed a very good juicer for these). Will give it a o… as soon as I can put my hand on kale that is!

    Would spinach be a good substitute for kale?

      Hi Jess, Yep spinach is a great sub for the kale. I have even been using the chlorophyl paste from the In the Mix cook book.
