Juicing With The Veggie Mojito

Four our second juicer recipe we will make The Veggie Mojito.  We call it a mojito because it has mint but it tastes more like an exotic lemonade.  Nutritionists talk about a healthy diet having foods with many different colors.  You should eat bright foods of different colors and for example not eat all yellow foods like potatoes, rice, bread, etc.  With this juice you will definitely have taken care of your green food group.  Several people have asked if you boil the fruits and vegetables before putting them through the juicer.  The answer is no.  All the food that goes in the juicer should be raw – at least for the purpose of our recipes.

We will use the amounts pictured above of ingredients for 3 glasses of juice. Veggie Mojito Recipe: kale, spinach, romaine lettuce, broccoli, 2 cucumbers, mint, parsley, 1 stick of celery, 3 limes and 4 apples.  For the ingredients that do not have a quantity listed use a handful as your measurement.

The lettuce and the cucumber are the ingredients that make your juice watery.  If the juice is too thick add some water or more cucumber and lettuce. Enjoy! :)

If you are looking for a juicer.  We use the Breville 800JEXL Juice Fountain Elite.
