This one is for you Jodie~! After you so kindly delivered that bunch of organic fresh kale straight from your amazing garden, I couldn’t resist juicing it up immediately. This one has a little twist with a mojito flavour and is really quick and easy to make. Here are the ingredients:
Fresh Kale Leaves
2 Cucumbers (skin on)
1 Lime (skin off)
Large Bunch of Mint
1-2 litres Coconut Water (lowest sugar content available)
Juice kale, cucumbers, lime and mint, then add coconut water. To make it just like a real mojito add some crushed ice before drinking.
While collecting the ingredients for this juice, I was very happy to find a little crop of wild gotu kola growing inside the pots my mint is growing in. So often I see weeds being pulled and destroyed when they are sighted. I love them, and I always research them and most times add them straight into my juice or smoothie. They are probably the most beneficial ingredient. Jump on google right now and check out the benefits of gotu kola – the list is endless 🙂
Here’s a photo below showing the shape of the gotu kola leaves below the mint leaves. They are heart shaped and very common. Remember them next time you see them.
I use my amazing Omega 8226 Nutrition Centre Juicer – which always makes juicing so quick and easy. Jodie has just bought one from me and she seems to agree with me completely. What a joy this machine is to use! I will post my Chocolate Avocado Pie recipe in the coming days.
