Energizing Detox Juice

This Energizing Detox Juice is the original no-nonsense, delicious and cleansing juice it was born to be. It contains very simple ingredients; just apples, cucumber, kale, lemon and ginger. These ingredients are often accessible year-round, especially where I come from (Vancouver), so it should be easy to pick them up at your local farmers market. In fact, most of the ingredients you could even grow yourself! Kale grows like crazy in the winter and if you have an apple tree then you’re in luck.

This juice is really cleansing and helps your mind feel clear. You will actually feel the sensation of the toxins flushing from your body. This is my go-to juice when me or my family is sick, feeling run-down or just in need of an energy boost. The lemon helps the digestive system and relieves bloating, constipation, etc. The peel of a lemon has also been said to have cancer-fighting properties. Cucumber is extremely hydrating and the apples are jam packed with Vitamin C. Ginger is your #1 immunity boosting pal. And of course, we all know and love our friend Kale which has tons of iron (iron helps deliver oxygen to your cells), so yay for Energizing Detox Juice! I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it! X
