This recipe focuses on the big three detoxifying ingredients, apples, lemon, and ginger. A great first juice of the day, this one will get the detox process going and the added heat from the cayenne jump starts the metabolism.

Ingredients

  • red apple
    16 oz
    2 ¼ medium apple
  • lemon
    1.79 oz
    ½ medium lemon
  • ginger
    0.18 oz
    2 ½ slices
  • cayenne (ground)
    1 pinch

Directions

  1. Wash the produce.

  2. Weigh ingredients.

  3. Peel the lemon. The skin imparts a bitter flavor if left on.

  4. Juice the ingredients together.

  5. Add a large pinch of cayenne pepper.

Pro Tips

  • Peeling the lemon is a matter of preference. We like to "skip peel" them, which is basically just roughly cutting off the peel, leaving some behind. This speeds up prep, and the little bit of peel adds a zest!
  • Did you know lemon juice is alkalizing? In its original state it is acidic with a pH of about 2, but once metabloized in the body, it becomes alkaline with a pH of 7+.

    1. Hi Sonya,

      Yes, when we cleanse, we drink this juice at the start of every cleanse day, so once a day. 🙂

  2. Do you add the cayenne pepper into the juicer at the time of juicing or is it sprinkled on top of the juice when you drink it.

    1. Hi Andrew,

      We add it to the juice, so you can sprinkle on top or stir it in 🙂
