Happy Tummy Greens Juice
Parsley and ginger are known to settle a sick stomach and to help keep a healthy stomach in good shape. That’s why this refreshing juice is called Happy Tummy Greens Juice. I served this green juice in my restaurant and it was always a big hit, even among the vacation crowd, as a refreshing way to start the morning.
1 medium (about 5–6 ounce) Granny Smith apple, cored and seeded
1/3 medium cucumber (about 3 ounces), ends trimmed
3/4 inch cube (about 1/3 ounce) fresh ginger
1 1/2 cups packed fresh spinach leaves
1/2 cup fresh parsley leaves (some stems are okay)
6 ice cubes
Cut the apple, cucumber, and ginger into quarters. Add them to the jar/pitcher of a blender along with the spinach, parsley, and ice cubes. Blend all ingredients on high for a few seconds until the ingredients start to incorporate.
Using a spatula, scrape down the sides of the blender, as needed, and continue to blend the mixture until it is completely smooth.
Transfer the juice to a 14–16 ounce glass. Garnish with a cucumber slice, if desired. Enjoy immediately.
Makes 1 serving.
