Detoxifying Green Drink

This detoxifying green drink is full of detoxifying greens including lacinato kale, dandelion and cilantro. The granny smith apple provides enough flavor to take out the bitterness and make this enjoyable.

Green Drink Ingredients

1 Lemon                              1 cucumber

½ bunch of dandelion      ½ bunch of cilantro

1/2 bunch of celery          1 granny smith apple

2 (1 inch) Ginger root    1 Stalk Lacinato kale

Serving Size:  This makes about 8oz of juice

Green Drink Instructions:

Step #1:  Gather all the ingredients

Step #2:  Cut everything up into small pieces as this will be easier on your juicer. Add things together in small proportion. So I might cut the lemon and apple into 8 chunks and add in 2 chunks of lemon, 2 chunks of apple, some cilantro, some cucumber, etc.   With this recipe – I like to do about 4 loads. So I proportion everything to get as even an amount as possible of each thing into 4 loads.

Step #3:  Add everything in slowly and let the juicer do its job. I personally use a simple Breville juicer and have good success with it. It is around $100 and the knock on it is that it doesn’t have great lasting power. If you are juicing daily, it should last you about a year. I like the Breville because it is stainless steel and not plastic. This minimizes toxic chemicals like phthalates and BPA.

Step #4:  Serve and Enjoy!


Dr Jockers Comments:

This juice is super rich in chlorophyll due to the Lacinato kale, cilantro and dandelion. The chlorophyll content of a food is a major indicator of the health attributes of any given plant based food.  Chlorophyll rich foods have a very deep green and are extraordinarily useful in building new blood cells and purifying the body from cancer and radiation. Chlorophyll also assists in wound healing, intestinal regularity, detoxification, and deodorization of the body.

Great juicing staples include celery, cucumber, lemon/lime and granny smith apple as these are all very low in sugar and produce a lot of juice. The dark greens such as kale, cilantro and dandelion provide very little juice, but tons of chlorophyll. So the combination of hydrating, low sugar fruit and veggies are key.

Ginger is one of the most powerful anti-inflammatory agents and is super supportive to the bodies digestive system. This drink will help improve liver function, digestive function and energy levels. Enjoy!

    Dr. Jockers,
    I will be traveling for a few months, it is inconvenient for me to bring my juicer(I have the same one you do). I purchased a small Nutri Ninja.Perhaps you know how they work. You get everything, just pulverized. I love this recipe,am I robbing myself in any way if I do not juice and only pulverize(makes it into a smoothie)?
    I always use organic vegs and fruits.
    Thank you for your time. I saw you recently on the docu-series The Truth About Cancer Cures. Thank you so much, Hope

    Hey Hope, yes you can pulverize and consume your veggies. It isn’t as smooth as a vegetable juice but it will work. Great to hear from you! Blessings!
