What a beautiful week we’re having! It’s finally starting to feel like summer, which means my favourite fruits are finally in season. Peaches! Watermelon! Kiwis! Expect some delicious fruity concoctions in the next few weeks, because I am so ready.
I’m on a bit of a green juice bender. It’s so refreshing! There’s nothing better than cucumber or celery after a solid workout (so rehydrating!), especially when it’s warm out. And I’m way more likely to consume green veggies if I drink them. So this juice is a little refresher for a beautiful sunny day. It ranks as one of my favourites for sure – it almost tastes like a mojito.
I’ve never juiced a kiwi before so I wasn’t sure if I should peel it or not, but I don’t have the best juicer so I figured it wouldn’t hurt to peel. Remove the seeds from the apples and pears, wash everything, and you’re golden. Be prepared for some separation with this one! Just give it a shake before you drink it if you don’t plan on drinking it right away. This made enough for 2 and a little extra.
- 4 kiwis
- 3 pears
- 1 granny smith apple
- 1/2 a cucumber
- a couple stalks of mint
- 1/4 of a lemon
Overall this juice is great for your eyes and skin. Kiwis are packed with vitamin C, A, and folate, as well as potassium, and small amounts of calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus. Granny Smith’s, cucumbers, and pears are also full of vitamin A and potassium.
