I’m a big juice person. Forget about juice cleansing, I mean the “sipping cold juice on a simmering hot, sunny day” type of juice drinking. Now that it’s over 80 degrees on the daily here in Hong Kong, I’ve been getting my juice on. I’m not shy of drinking all the fruits and veggies, so I whipped up this extra green, detox juice. For those of you that prefer drinking rather than eating your greens, this one’s for you!
I consider this a detox juice, because it has more veggies than fruit in it. If you prefer sweeter juice, you can sub coconut water for the regular water or add in some extra apple. But I really wanted to keep this one extra green, so I packed the juice full of cucumber, baby spinach, green apple, lemon, and ginger. You can also try my green detox smoothie bowl made with banana, spinach, and mint, if you want a more complete meal. I’ve also rounded up these 8 vegan spring detox recipes that all look super delicious.
I was busy working all weekend, but I got to participate in a vegan festival called Hong Kong Herbival. It was one of the first of its kind in Hong Kong, promoting plant-based food, makeup, clothing, and all sorts of green living products. I had a blast and was so excited to see that the green movement has become more popular here! I used to feel like I was the only plant-based gal in Hong Kong, but now I’ve made all sorts of plant-based friends. I hope to see it continue to blossom. Anyways, I hope you enjoy the recipe!
