Overdid things a bit last night? This refreshing and detoxifying juice will reboot your system and leave you feeling clean and light. The celery flushes toxins from the body and is a natural diuretic. Carrot is a natural liver cleanser and stimulates digestion, as do the lettuce and spinach. Add a little fresh ginger for some zip and sip throughout the day to get your body back on track.
- 2 carrots, chopped
- 3 celery stalks, chopped
- 2 cups of spinach OR 2 cups of lettuce
- 1 cup of fresh parsley
- juice of 1/2 lemon
- 1-2 cups of filtered water or coconut water/juice
Place all ingredients in a high speed blender and blend for one minute. Pour through a fine sieve into a large pitcher or bowl, pushing the fibers with a large spoon to remove all liquid. Return liquid to blender, add ice, and blend for another 15 seconds. Drink immediately and enjoy throughout the day.
Other detoxifying ingredients include: cucumber, watercress, cabbage, beets, and apples. Play with these ingredients and make your own potion!
