More vegetables are always a good thing. Unless, of course, a gulp of pondwater with your morning toast puts you off your healthy stride for the whole day.
So if you’re not keen on green juice, tweak your recipe. Our favourite feelgood blend involves ginger, lemon, cucumber, spinach, celery and a healthy dollop of nut butter. But we admit, it took a while to appreciate its earthy tones. So here’s how to make your green juice work for you.
Add an apple, a hearty splash of almond milk or half a banana, until your drink tastes sweet.
The idea of throwing in half a peeled lemon might seem scary, but the tartness is great for balancing earthy vegetables.
by adding a scoop of protein powder (hello, chocolate) and a tablespoon of ground flaxseed, which is packed with essential omega-3 fatty acids.
Cashew, almond and peanut butter transform your juice into a creamy, luxurious drink. Add an extra dollop or two to taste the difference.
Not only will a big handful of blueberries sweeten your glass, but the colour conceals green veggies like spinach you may be suspicious of.
Cubes do more than cool your drink: the blended shards thicken your juice to a refreshing, smoothie-like texture.
Perhaps not at breakfast time. But if you’re making cocktails, why not make your mixer as healthy as possible?
