Cucumber, pear, kale, wheatgrass & mint juice
7th Dec, 2015

Ingredients

  • 2 cucumbers
  • 2 pears, washed and halved
  • 200g kale
  • 1 tsp high quality wheatgrass powder
  • 1 handful mint leaves
  • 2 ice cubes
  • Squeeze of lemon

Equipment required:

  • Juicer
  • Food Processor

The fresh cucumbers with the nutrient dense wheatgrass are a great pick-me-up during the day, and the mint adds that extra light, clean taste. Placing the kale in the blender rather than juicing it preserves more of the nutrients and gives the juice a thicker texture and brighter green colour.

  1. Put the cucumber and pear through the juicer.
  2. Pour this juice into the blender and add the kale, wheatgrass powder, mint, ice and lemon juice. Blitz until smooth.
