SIRTFOOD GREEN JUICE
- 2 large handfuls kale
- A large handful rocket
- A small handful parsley
- A very small handful lovage leaves (optional)
- 2–3 large stalks (150g) green celery, including its leaves
- ½ medium green apple
- Juice of ½ lemon
- ½ level tsp matcha green tea
Mix the greens (kale, rocket, parsley and lovage, if using) together, then juice them. Juicers can really differ in their efficiency at juicing and you may need to re-juice the remnants of the leafy vegetables before moving on to the other ingredients. The goal is to end up with about 50ml of juice from the greens.
Now juice the celery and apple.
You can peel the lemon and put it through the juicer as well, but you may find it much easier to simply squeeze the lemon by hand into the juice. By this stage, you should have around 250ml of juice in total or slightly more.
It is only when the juice is made and ready to serve that you add the matcha green tea. Pour a small amount of the juice into a glass, then add the matcha and stir vigorously with a fork or teaspoon.
