6 Ingredient Micro-Green Juice

0

I’ve heard that a little green juice is great for detoxing after the holidays or whenever you have overdone it with food and beverage! Not sure if that is a true fact but I say “a little extra “Green” in your diet is always a good thing”. You can use organic fruits and veggies if you would like. Adjust fruit and veggie amounts to suit your personal taste. If you use more apples means it will be a little sweeter. I don’t have a fancy juicer so what ever you have should work just fine.

Ingredients: 

1/2 Apple (Granny Smith and Pink Lady are my favorites) peels on and seeded

Micro Greens a small bunch Spinach handful washed and dried

1 Celery stalk

1/8 TSP Fresh grated Ginger or more if you prefer

1/2- 1C H20 depending on your blender

Instructions: 

This is so easy!

Quarter and chunk your apple, then add all ingredients to your blender and blend until it is all chopped and smooth.

For a thicker consistency use less water

That’s it!

Servings: 1-6oz serving

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: N/A

Total Time: 5 minutes

You can add Ginger Essential Oil if you don’t have fresh ginger, just a tiny drop. Don’t have Micro-greens? Use more Spinach or substitute Kale, Collards or even Broccoli!

Hey I'm Jenn, NYer turned OKie after my husbands 30 year ARMY career. We have four pretty amazing adult kids, two of which are active duty soldiers, so yes we are "empty nesters" But that didn't last, we bought 40 acres called The Roost and a few chickens to fill that void. Though my career was Physical Therapy many years ago, I chose to stay at home with our kids during my husband's active duty career with lots of volunteering added to my resume. I dabbled in substitute teaching at many duty stations and started contract work with R. Riveter as a Remote Leather Riveter, RR131 :). I love to cook, garden, create garden/field to table recipes and listen to audiobooks while doing that. My goal is to "keep moving" so staying active as long as I can through running, yoga, biking is my go to, but I do enjoy a frothy cup of black coffee, a glass of wine and chips and salsa. Here with Military Mom Collective I want to inspire, guide, share tips and tricks that we have learned through our military journey. Also to help other empty nester moms out there who have kids that are active duty. It is a different ball game when your kids are active and deploying, but we can get through it together.
