I have been meaning to throw myself into the world of green juices and smoothies for a while now, but have not had a chance to get round to it yet, as I have been so busy. So after I got home from work I made some bounty bars (mounds for the benefit of my American friends!) and then I decided to make a green drink. My dad likes to visit a local farm every Wednesday, where he will bulk buy fruit and vegetables, then share them with me. I am often left wondering what to do with a dozen cucumbers and other things he brings home. So here's what I added to my drink:
1 tsp of hemp seeds
1 tbsp of green powder (wheatgrass powder (30%), pea protein powder (25%), barley grass powder (20%), spinach powder (15%), ginger powder (5%) and spirulina powder)
The juice of 1 small lemon
1 large Bramley apple
1 small 177ml (6fl oz) carton of apple juice
1 peeled cucumber
Can anyone offer me some tips on how I can improve the recipe for next time? I liked the taste, but I may omit or reduce the amount of apple juice I use, as the carton contained 19g of sugar. Would filtered water be better? What about something leafy, like romaine lettuce?
