Green Mint Zinger
Prep time: Depends how good you are with a knife (about five/ten minutes)
Cook time: None! About ten minutes through the juicer or a bit more depending on juicer.
Total time: 15-20
Serves: 1/2
Ingredients
    • ¬†Two Granny Smith apples peeled and chopped into pieces
    • 1 bunch of mint leaves
    • 2 limes peeled and cut into quarters (or lemons)
    • 1 large handful of dark green leaves e.g. spinach
    • 1 large peeled cucumber cut into rectangular pieces
Instructions
  1. I don’t peel the apples if they are organic and unwaxed. Granny Smiths, are quite sour if you want to use another variety, knock yourself out. I do tend to peel the cucumber as it’s easier to juice.
  2. Run everything through your juicer. If you are using a masticating juicer (slower, as they crush the cell wall) end the juicing with a few of the lime (or lemon) pieces as they juice easily and will push through any lingering pulpy bits.
  3. If you, like strain the juice (I don’t). Serve with ice cubes (or dilute with water). Will keep in fridge for a day or two.
