A busy Saturday morning of stair-climbing left me craving a fresh, sweet, zingy green juice – badly. So instead of travelling across town to my favorite juice bar – I decided to use up a few of my NYC Greenmarket goodies and craft one at home in a matter of minutes – ah the joys of owning a Superangel juicer.
I was anxious to use up my big beautiful bag of fresh spinach – they were starting to wilt a bit, and I knew juicing the greens would make perfect use of them. Add in an extra large farm fresh apple and a few zingy items and voila! I even got to try out my super cool metal reusable straw – which I love. Here’s my simple four ingredient recipe for Greenmarket Green Juice…
Greenmarket Green Juice
1 ½ tablespoon fresh ginger, peeled
1 extra extra large tart apple, green or yellow
5 cups fresh full grown spinach, slightly wilted OK
½ lemon, peeled
Juice, drink, enjoy.
My apple even had a few spots on it – perfect for juicing.
New Fave Juicing Tip: Use your slightly wilted greens for juicing – nothing wasted and quite delicious!
*Fresh Farmer’s Market greens work best for this since store-bought wilted greens – usually are too aged and travelled to be of any use. Use your best judgement…
