    Serving Size

    Makes approximately 24 ounces (3 cups) of heart-healthy juice.

    Ingredients

    6 green apples
    6 large cucumbers
    1 stalk lemongrass
    1 small piece (thin slice) fresh ginger
    3 freshly squeezed limes

    Preparation

    • Using a juicer press the apples, ginger and lemongrass.

    • Include the skin and stalks for all ingredients becasue the skin offers the highest concentration of anti-oxidants.

    • Add in cucumbers and strain the juice through a very fine sieve.

    • Mix in the freshly squeezed lime juice and using a cocktail shaker, shake the juice with crushed ice and serve cold.
