Here is the best green juice recipe you’ve been looking for! It’s delicious and packed with skin-nourishing nutrients your whole body will love. This green juice is my favorite because the apple and lemon add just the right amount of sweetness to mask the bitter, nutrient-dense greens, while the ginger adds a little zing. If you’re not a fan of ginger, start with a small amount (1/2-inch piece) and work your way up to 1- to 2-inches. This antioxidant-rich ingredient contains anti-inflammatory properties and aids digestion (1).
NOTE: Always buy certified organic greens, celery, cucumbers, and apples to avoid pesticide exposure, as conventional varieties of these items are some of the most pesticide-contaminated foods in America according to the Environmental Working Group (EWG).
