Plant Blood All Day Long…Yowza, I Feel Great!

by Kristen Suzanne in green juice

Today, I made a mother of a Plant Blood (my name for juice). Here is what it was and it kept me high on juice all day long (made about 3 quarts):

1-2 cups water
3 cups fresh, home grown sprouts
2 red delicious apples*
1/2 bunch celery
1 red bell pepper
2 cucumbers**
4 large rainbow chard leaves
4 large curly kale leaves***
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice****
juice from 2 oranges****

* This variety is reported to have the highest level of phytonutrients!
** Great for your skin!
*** Potent cancer fighting antioxidants in these babies!
**** Say “hello” to Vitamin C!

I used my Blendtec blender (the best high-powered blender on the market in my opinion) to liquefy my produce. Then, I strained it through a nutmilk bag into a large bowl, and transferred it to three glass mason jars (I filled them to the tippy top to reduce oxidation). I savored them all day long. Yowza! This plant blood was loaded with so many powerful nutrients. It rocked!
