Why We Love This Green Juice Shot Recipe
Green drinks (juice and smoothies) are popular, but can be unbalanced in their vegetable to fruit ratio. Chef Ari developed this zippy green shot for a “one and done” approach, covering a big chunk of your daily recommended vitamins and minerals in an easy, drinkable way.
All of these ingredients are easily found at your local grocery store, and can have fantastic effects on your overall health.
Here’s what chef Ari had to say about it:
“One of our favorite shots (besides cold or immunity shots) is a daily shot, something loaded with as much vitamins and minerals as you need for the day. The most nutrient dense products in juicing are, of course, leafy greens, turmeric and spirulina. The cucumber is there to help make it a little more consumable. The lemon and ginger are included to keep the juice vibrant, but also to cut through some of the stronger flavors.”
