Spicy Greens Juice
some like it spicy
How much spice do you like? In this juice recipe, you can adjust the heat level from mild (by removing all the jalapeño seeds prior to juicing), to ambitiously spicy (if you juice the pepper whole), to anywhere in between. I use this juice if I feel a cold coming on because it is low in sugar and high in immune-boosting nutrients, especially vitamin C and chlorophyll.
4 Celery Stalks
3 Kale Leaves
2 Romaine Lettuce Leaves
1 Jalapeño Pepper, seeds (partially or entirely) removed
½ Lime, juiced
¼ tsp Navitas Naturals Camu Camu Berry Powder
Juice the cucumbers, celery, kale, lettuce, and jalapeño pepper. Transfer the juice to a shaker cup or blender, add the lime juice and camu berry powder, and blend until ingredients are fully incorporated.
Add cilantro to this blend for a flavor upgrade, and gain the benefits of its natural anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties.
