green juice recipe-3 (mint and parsley)Posted in : Juicing on by : apsara Tags: green juice, mint, parsley, red chard, Romaine lettuce
Green juice gets richer when it is darker and parsley is a great way to add to the dark green color. It’s nutrition benefits can be found here.
It has to be added in moderation though, since it has a very strong flavor. One way to mitigate the strong flavor is to use it in combination with mint. I added red chard to the mix, further deepening the color.
As always, I added a generous amount of fresh lime to make it more palatable. Yummy!
Here’s what I used (all organic):
Romaine lettuce- a bunch
celery stalks- 5
mint- a handful, only leaves
parsley- a small bunch
red chard- 4 leaves with stalk
large lime- 1 and 1/2
