You are going to love the Green Beauty Juice. Years ago I decided to come up with an enjoyable juice to be my staple go-to recipe.
I wanted a juice that I could drink each day to give me energy and contribute to anti-aging and beauty efforts. I also wanted it to be an all around healthy and cleansing combination for my body. I knew this meant it had to be green in some nature, and also contain low sugar.
I toyed around with a lot of greens and ingredients and came up with a recipe that I’m so proud of.
This juice is my special blend of green juices + coconut water. I drink it almost everyday and think it’s part of the reason that I feel great and have aged slower than others my age. It also helps me with my busy schedule (I don’t have to wonder what I’ll juice when I’m in a hurry).
I call it the Green Beauty Juice.
(p.s.- Some famous supermodels have touted drinking this juice)
This juice is rich in chlorophyll, and is extremely cleansing. The rich nutrients and cleansing power contribute to beauty inside and out.
SPINACH Spinach is high in vitamin A, vitamin C, folate and iron. It’s great for the cleansing, reconstructing and regeneration of the intestinal track. It also stimulates the lymph glands, the liver and helps with blood circulation.
ROMAINE LETTUCE Lettuce is high in silicon which contributes to hair and skin health. It also has B complex vitamins which are good for healthy skin.
CELERY Celery juice is high in organic sodium. It’s a great way to replace the water you lose during the day or if you are active. It helps to remove water weight (debloat naturally!) and is said to curb your desire for sweets.
KALE Kale is an excellent source of beta carotene, vitamin K, calcium, sulfur and iron. It is a superior source of nutrients and minerals that will help with proper functions of all body systems.
CUCUMBER Cucumbers have a lot of water so they help to regulate body temperature by carrying vitamins to the cells and carrying waste from the cells.
It’s a great beauty juice because it's an excellent source of silicon which gives elasticity to the skin and is great for the complexion.
COCONUT WATER Coconut water is extremely hydrating and has natural electrolytes. It’s a good source of B vitamins and potassium (also low in calories).
This makes enough for 2 glasses or juice or one large glass (16 ounces).
1 cup of kale (approximately 2 large leaves if you are measuring it uncut)
1 cup of spinach
1 cup of romaine lettuce (I like the hearts-approximately 2 large leaves)
4 celery stalks
1 cup of coconut water (fresh is best, but a good organic not-from-concentrate brand is great too)
Cut half a cucumber into 1-2 inch pieces. Cut the celery into 2 inch pieces. Cut the spinach, kale and romaine into smaller pieces. You could also roll them in a cylinder to feed into your juicing tube (test it out to see what works best for your juicer).
Juice the cucumber, kale, celery, spinach, and romaine lettuce together, alternating.
After you’ve juiced, add the coconut water to the juice. Mix it together and serve immediately.
Omit coconut water: If you don’t have coconut water on hand but still would like to make this recipe, add 3 apples of any variety. The leafy greens overpower this recipe so the ratio would not be right (or tasty) if you did not add some type of other produce.
You want it sweeter: This recipe doesn’t include any sugary fruits. If you want something sweeter, add 1 apple in any variety to the whole recipe.
If you juice the Green Beauty Juice often you’ll be well on your way to a more beautiful, sexy and healthy you. Not only is it cleansing, it’s wildly nourishing for every cell in your body. I recommend making it a personal challenge to juice this everyday- or at least once a week.
