Apple Aloe Tart Green Juice



Is it a smoothie or a juice? The consistency is more juice like.  But it was not made in a juicer.  You decide.  The consistency is a cool one, and is almost in layers.  The denser part of the juice settles to the bottom while the fluffy cloud like foam remains at the top.  It tastes delicious!!

Why Aloe? Ah the benefits.  Aids in Acid Reflux and Indigestion, calms the Esophagus from irritation, great for digestion, a sour tummy, and amazing for skin and hair.  Often the holistic and natural remedy for Acid Reflux or Indigestion is Aloe.

WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
1 large handful of spinach
1 cup skinless cucumber
a squeeze or two lemon juice from a half of a lemon
3-4 slices of Granny Smith apple (less then half of an apple)
1 Tbsp. Aloe Vera Juice
1 serving of your powder Probiotic
1/2 cup water
3-4 ice cubes

TIPS:
-The more Green apple you put in the more tart it will be.  Start off with 2-3 slices, and then add in as you go along (with a taste test of course)
-Sometimes apple can be grainy, so make sure you blend it for a longer amount of time.
-Adding in your Probiotic is a great way to get it in!  Especially in the morning.  Faster absorption, better effects and tasteless in a drink.
-If you don't have Aloe Vera Juice, try the Gel or the actual plant.
-Measurements do not need to be exact.  Play.  Have confidence in your instincts and see what comes out.

DIRECTIONS:
-Add the spinach, cucumber, lemon juice, Aloe Vera juice, Probiotic, water and 2-3 slices of the apple and blend until desired consistency.
-Taste to see if tart enough.  If not add more apple.
-Blend again.
-Add ice cubes and blend again.

Serves 1 large beautiful green drink or 2 smaller ones.

Enjoy! xx Julie
