Alkaline Green Juice

This is an amazing juice to kick start your day or enjoy as a refreshing mocktail in the evening!
May 14, 2015 | Joy McCarthy

I love making fresh juice in the morning to kick-start my day!

I call it my Alkaline Green Juice because it contains wonderful minerals such as potassium, magnesium, manganese, and calcium. These minerals are important for the formation of bones, to keep your heart beating healthfully and an essential part of your nervous system and neurotransmitter function. This is why eating whole foods is necessary for joyous health because minerals are the foundation of a healthy body.

This juice recipe is super refreshing and very tasty, not bitter at all. If you're familiar with green juicing, then you've likely made juices that are quite bitter. While bitter notes are very stimulating and cleansing for the digestive system and liver, they are not always very tasty, especially if your palette is new to juicing.

But don't worry, because this juice is so excellent to get your digestive juices flowing due to enzymes it contains and of course, lemon being a fantastic hydrochloric acid stimulant.

This juice is perfect for hydrating the body too because cucumber, apple and celery are water dense foods.

I love it so much I made a recipe video to share with you!

 Here is the recipe:

  • 4 celery stalks

  1. Using your juice extractor, slowly run all the ingredients through your juicer.
  2. If you don't have a juicer, you can put all these ingredients with some water into a blender and then strain the fibre from the juice with a wire mesh strainer or a nutbag.

Hi Joy, Your Alkaline juice looks delicious! I have been debating if I should get a juicer and wondered if there was a juicer you really liked. They seem quite expensive, do you have favourite? Thanks:)

sounds delicious! I do not have a juicer but think it would be a great addition to my kitchen. What do you do with the pulp that you get from your juice? can you do anything with it? or is there a way I can make this without a juicer? thanks Joy!

Hi Joy, Just wondering if it is ok to peel the cucumber if we are unable to source organic, or does that mean losing a lot of the nutrients? Where I live my options are somewhat limited, but getting better! Can't wait to try this juice!! Thanks :)

This sounds delicious! I do not have a juicer but I do have a Blendtec blender and was wondering if I put it on Juicing if I can still get the same effect??? It would then be more like a smoothie with all the pulp then juice I would think. Is this still ok?

I think its good if you add a pinch of cardamom powder to the same so as to get rid off the stinky smell of the cucumber and of course a pinch of salt as per your choice because I don't think sugar will work here......Anyways sounds nice:)
