Apple Cucumber Kale Juice
Here’s what you’ll need:
- One apple
- One english cucumber
- 2 large curly kale leaves
- 1/2 lemon
Start by thoroughly washing your apple, kale leaves and english cucumber. I also washed off the lemon to ensure there was no dirt on the rind that might get into the juice.
Cut your apple and cucumber into smaller pieces that your juicer will be able to process. Also cut your lemon in half and remove most of the rind but leave on as much of the white part as you can. I did this because the rind will be tough on the juicer.
For the kale, I used most of the whole leaf, except for the bottom part of the leaf where the stem becomes very thick. I didn’t juice the thickest part of the stem because it’s hard for my juicer to process.
Now you’re all set to start juicing. Start by putting your half of a lemon in your juicer followed by some apple and cucumber chunks. Then add in some of your kale and follow with the apple and cucumber chunks to help the juicer to push through as much of that kale juice as possible. Continue this way adding in some kale followed by the apple and cucumber until everything has been juiced.
Once done juicing, pour into a glass and serve immediately. Enjoy your apple cucumber kale juice!
