SWEET GREEN ALKALINE
I wasn't quite sure how this juice was going to turn out by looking at the ingredients, but I have to say, this goes in my TOP FIVE of my favorite all time juices, maybe close to the top!
The Mint countered the slight bitterness of the Swiss chard, pear gave a slight sweetness, and the cucumber, always a staple in any juice.
Makes 2 Servings
Prep Time 5 Minutes
- 1 Bunch Swiss Chard
- Handful Fresh Mint
- 1 Cucumber
- 1 Pear
- 1 tbsp of Chia Seeds (optional) Mix in with juice to neutralize and slow down the metabolism of any sugars in the pear.
Suggested Juicing Order
Swiss Chard, Pear, Mint, Cucumber - JUICE CUCUMBER LAST TO FLUSH AS MUCH FLAVOR AS POSSIBLE FROM JUICER.
SWISS CHARD - roughly chop across the stem, then roll up the leaves to juice
PEAR - no need to peel. Add more or less depending on level of sweetness, for me 2 was perfect.
MINT - tightly ball up the leaves to juice, juicing the stems will add more mint flavor.
Any questions, post below, and would love to see your pictures!
