Ultimate Green Juice
This is my go-to green juice. I like to make it fresh every morning, have a glass before breakfast and then keep the rest in the fridge to drink in the afternoon. The ratio of vegetables to fruit is 6:1 so while it won't spike your blood sugar, it does have quite a strong greens taste which takes some getting used to if you're just starting out.
I peeled, chopped and weighed the ingredients because I wanted to give accurate amounts – I hate when it says 'a handful of...' in a recipe; I have tiny hands, it's going to come out all wrong – but if the produce you have is slightly larger or smaller then it won't affect the result too much. Passing the pulp through the juicer a second time ensures you get every last drop.
