I have to confess, I’m a bit of a green juice addict. They’re so refreshing and nourishing, it’s like drinking a glass of pure health. In fact, if it wasn’t for the fact that juicers are an absolute pain in the arse to clean, I would genuinely be an addict!
With all this said, I have just one particular favourite juice that I pretty much make all the time! The only trouble being is that it has apple in it and right now, in the height of summer, we are all out of last seasons apple stores and a few months away from this years season – so I’m having to come up with summer juice alternatives!
This one is made with refreshing fennel and cucumber, giving you the perfect taste of summer! It is a pure green juice as it contains only vegetables with only a tiny piece of sneaky lime. It’s not too sweet but it’s crisp and fresh, perfect for a hot August day!
Summer Green Juice
1/2 small fennel bulb
3 stalks celery
2 large handfuls of spinach
1/4 lime, flesh only
A few mint leaves
1/4 tsp spirulina
- Wash the ingredients and chop them into large chunks.
- Process everything through your juicer apart from the spirulina.
- Put the spirulina into a glass and pour over a small amount of the juice. Whisk together until smooth.
- Pour the rest of the juice into the glass, stir and enjoy.
