Lean Green Sweetie

lean-green-sweetie

This juice is a nice, sweet way to get in your greens for the day. There is no need to suffer through bowls of spinach or broccoli (if you don’t like them) when you can juice your greens and get everything in with one powerful shot that tastes delicious. Green grapes and green apples keep this juice sweet while allowing it to retain its signature green-ness. Cucumbers add plenty of hydrating water and a neutral earthy flavor, while kale packs the biggest nutritional punch and makes the juice thick and filling.

Kale is packed with vitamin K, vitamin A, and vitamin C. The antioxidant properties of kale are believed to help reverse signs of aging and prevent certain types of cancers from forming in the body. Kale is the world’s best provider of vitamin C, which can help to boost the immune system and can improve the way that the body processes collagen. Kale can also help to protect the eyes and prevent deficiencies in many different kinds of trace nutrients.

Green grapes help to protect the bones, teeth, gums, and blood vessels. The vitamin K present in green grapes (as well as the other ingredients in this juice) helps the blood to clot properly, ensuring better healing abilities. The ingredients in a Lean Green Sweetie also contain plenty of iron, which helps our muscles store and use oxygen.
