Perk your cells up with these energizing juices.

Wild Green Spring Detox Juice

One of the best herbs to use for spring cleansing is dandelion. It acts as a cleansing agent on both the liver and the kidneys. It helps to purify the blood and flush out uric acid crystals that accumulate from eating a diet too rich in animal proteins and other acid-producing foods. It also restores the alkalinity of the blood.

  • 1 cucumber, peeled if not organic
  • 1 celery stalk
  • 1 handful wild greens such as dandelion, nettles, plantain, lamb’s quarters, or sorrel  (or you can substitute arugula)
  • 1 apple (green is lower in sugar)
  • 1 lemon, peeled if not organic

Cut all ingredients to fit your juicer’s feed tube, then juice. Stir the juice and enjoy. Serves 1.
