Mojito Green Juice

Beat the summer heat with this refreshingly healthy green drink.

I have a new favorite green juice recipe. Although I’ve never done a full on green juice diet or green juice detox, I think that green juice has major benefits and drink it several days every week. I feel so healthy when I get a big bowl of vegetables into my diet, in liquid form, in addition to the veggies I eat all day long.

I found a mojito green juice recipe over on one of my favorite websites, Dr. Frank Lipman. The recipe on his site calls for spinach, I’ve changed it up a bit by using parsley instead. Whichever way you make it, I think you’ll find this green juice completely refreshing, and you’ll feel wonderful after you drink it.

Mojito Green Juice
Ingredients
  • 1 small bunch mint
  • 1 small bunch parsley
  • 1 lime
  • ½ inch fresh ginger
  • 2 cucumbers
  • 1 green apple
Instructions
  1. Push mint, parsley, lime, ginger, cucumbers, and apple through a juicer
  2. Serve

While I used to have a Green Star juicer, I found that it took quite a long time to push the vegetables through and even longer to clean it. I recently switched over to this Breville juicer and am absolutely in love with it. It’s so easy to use that I juice several times per week, even when I’m on the go.

Here are some of my other favorite juice recipes:

    Elana thank your for this yummy one I cant wait for. I’ve been adding kale to my protein powder in my Vitamix and never had a juicer. Does anyone know if juicing or Vitamix is a healthier version to drink?

      I was told that using the Vitamix is better because you get fiber. I love my Ninja but I also adore my Jack LaLane juicer!!! I also use protein powder in my Ninja, but veggies is there can’t be beat!! I love my green grape, kale, cucumber, lime, green apple and mango smoothie in the evening. Especially when it is hot!!

    I saved this recipe until I had time to try it. This morning I decided that I would like to make juice. Fortunately between my fridge and garden, I had everything for this recipe, except that my apple wasn’t green. It’s a very nice, refreshing drink!
