“Body cleansing” green juice


It is generally considered better to use more vegetable rather than fruit in combinations juices. Fruit juices tend to be more acidic and have a higher sugar content which can cause energy imbalances, strain the kidneys, plus weaken the enamel on our teeth!
Vegetable juices (especially green) cleanse the blood, alkalise the system and also encourage liver detoxification. Perfect for this time of year as a gentle detox after the Christmas season.

The recipes below make up 500ml, just bigger than a pint glass.
