Gut-loving green juice

Think of juicing as a quick way to get lots of vitamins and nutrients into your body. I don’t do juice cleanses and don’t use juices as a meal replacement. Instead, I love making a small veggie-packed juice and enjoying it with my (usually fibre rich) breakfast or lunch.

For this easy green juice recipe, I combine highly alkalizing spinach with green apple, cucumber, ginger, and lime. Spinach tastes mild and is packed with nutrition, lemon and ginger adds zing, the cucumber adds mineral-rich water, and the apple balances everything out with a little sweetness.


3 small Lebanese cucumbers

2 celery sticks

¼ apple

½ lime or lemon (whatever you prefer)

1 inch knob of fresh ginger

Small handful of baby spinach leaves


Pop all of the ingredients into a blender and blitz until smooth. Enjoy!
