Apple Cucumber Juice

AppleCucumber

I put my juicer on my counter-top instead of the cupboard, in hopes that it would encourage me to use it more often. Unfortunately until the last few weeks it was just collecting dust. However, I discovered a farmer’s market that just opened in my area, and now I have to use up all the produce I bought. Pure apple juice is just way to sweet, but I found that if you juice cucumber with it, it turns into a light refreshing drink.

1 apple
1 field or english cucumber
1 lemon

Run cut fruits and veggies through the juice, scoop off the foam and enjoy. Not only is it refreshing, but you will look and feel better.

  1. The green juice makes more body more alkaline.
  2. Cucumbers helps to hydrate the skin, and aid digestion.
  3. Apples are loaded with beta carotene and apple peels are particularly rich in polyphenols which offer antioxidant and anti-inflammatory protection to slow aging of skin.
  4. Ginger has antiseptic properties and keeps the skin clear and blemish free.
  5. Lemon is a strong antibacterial, antiviral, and immune-boosting digestive aid and liver cleanser. It also stops the apple juice turn brown.
