Emerald Deluxe | Spinach,Celery,Cucumber Juice Recipe
The Emerald Deluxe also comes from The Healthy Juicer’s Bible written by Farnoosh Brock. This is another recipe I made before going on vacation, hoping to get the post done before taking off, but to no avail. It has a wonderful, deep, green (emerald) color. I love dark, emerald-green juices.When I drink them I can just feel the good, powerful nutrients entering my blood stream. Sounds crazy huh? Just try this recipe and use your imagination.
I can just taste the ginger and cucumber. Absolutely a beautiful color and you can certainly tell how it got its name.
I use my Omega J8004 juicer and get plenty of fantastic, healthy juice from this recipe.
Makes 24 ounces
- 2-3 cups of baby or regular spinach
- 3-4 stalks of celery
- 3-4 small Persian cucumbers (I used what was available)
- 1 cup green or red grapes
- 1 large Granny Smith apple
- a small piece of ginger (careful, very strong stuff)
UPDATE: Spinach and other green vegetables contain chlorophyll which has shown to be effective at blocking the carcinogenic effects of heterocyclic amines which are generated when grilling foods at a high temperature. Spinach is high in vitamin A, which is necessary for sebum production to keep hair moisturized. Vitamin A is also necessary for the growth of all bodily tissues, including skin and hair. Spinach and other leafy greens high in vitamin C are imperative for the building and maintenance of collagen, which provides structure to skin and hair.
