Refresher Juice with Apple, Kiwi, Lime + Mint

What’s better on a hot, sunny day than a fresh fruit juice?  This one’s sweet and refreshing, perfect for a morning pick me up or an afternoon refresher.  Although oranges are always in the spotlight for vitamin C content, did you know that kiwis actually contain more vitamin C?  You get about one and a half times the recommended daily value from one kiwi.  How awesome is that.  Along with loads of vitamin C (kiwi, apple, and lime), this juice is packed with fiber (apple), protein and antioxidants (mint and spirulina).  If you are not too familiar with spirulina, I wrote about it in a previous blog post here.

So, dust off your juicer and let’s get juicing.

Makes 1 glass of juice

Refresher Juice with Apple Kiwi Lime Mint Juice

Refresher Juice Ingredients:

  • 2 gala apples
  • 2 kiwi fruit
  • 1 lime
  • 10-20 sprigs of mint
  • 1 teaspoon spirulina powder

Directions:

  • Cut the apple into quarters so that it fits in your juicer.
  • Place apples, kiwis, and lime in juicer.  My juicer doesn’t extract the juice from mint, so I added the mint and spirulina along with the juice into my blender afterwards.  If you can juice the mint, go for it.
  • Pour into your favourite glass, sip, and enjoy.
