How to Make Kale and Cucumber Juice
We love this recipe because everything is really easy to find in any supermarket. If you don’t have dill or it doesn’t sound like the herb for you, try chives or basil. The idea of the herb is to compliment the kale, and kale goes with practically all herbs.
To prepare the fruit and vegetables you can either peel them or just wash them. You might be tempted to peel the cucumber, but it is the skin that has the most Vitamin K. Cut them into slices but there is no need to worry about cutting anything too small.
You need to blend the curly kale leaves first. Then add the celery, carrots, and apples. Blend it all together. Once the juice is smooth, start adding the dill. Add a pinch at a time and pulse the juice so it is well mixed in. Taste it before you add more dill.
Kale is sometimes left on the store shelf because the idea of eating it is somewhat …. like eating grass. But the health benefits shouldn’t be ignored. It is full of antioxidants and it might play a part in reducing cholesterol. It has a lot of Vitamin C and a massive amount of vitamin K.
Kale has a very earthy taste. The cucumber and apple with counteract the rather strong taste with a bitter-sweetness. This juice is packed with nutrition and glass will energize you!
This will produce 2-3 large glasses of juice. If you want to make more you can double the ingredients, just be sure to mix them all together properly.
