TIPS ON HOW TO MAKE JUICE
First things first you don’t need a fancy juicer to make wholesome delicious juice recipes. All you need is a blender, strainer or thin towel, and spatula.
Next, cucumbers are brilliant to add to juices as they are packed with water. Apples, lemons, and limes add a bit of sweetness which help contrast bitter vegetables. The little bit of sweetness helps enhance the overall flavor of our juices and creates something we enjoy drinking.
Finally, adding fresh ginger gives our juice a little kick and warmth. Ginger helps improve digestion and relieve pain.
HOW TO MAKE JUICE
