A juice for a hot day!

This juice is a really stunning colour which makes it very inviting to drink. I rushed off in the car yesterday to pick my children up from school and forgot to take my drink bottle with me. I literally have this drink bottle which is filled with filtered water with me at all times and sip it constantly. By the time l got home l was really thirsty as it was a very warm Melbourne afternoon and l was gone for around one hour. Because of my digestive issues l just couldn’t drink enough water to catch up and l was so busy making lunches and dinner that l started to crave a really refreshing juice, rather than a meal. I made the rest of the family a lovely roasted free range chicken served with salad and myself the very delicious juice pictured above. Over about an hour l managed to drink it all and l felt thoroughly satisfied and my strong thirst was gone. I usually share my juices with the family but on this occasion l decided that l should spoil myself and as l had cut up half a watermelon for my husband and children to eat for dessert, they seemed not to notice what l was having. I also tried out my new stainless steel straws which l can highly recommend. I always drink through a straw which is related to sensitivity in my teeth and the plastic ones were such a problem to dispose of and a real waste. I bought a pack of four stainless steel ones which came with a little brush to clean them. Not being able to bite them as you can with a plastic straw takes some getting used to, but they are wider than a normal straw so you get a good amount of liquid through them.


2 green apples with the skin on (well washed)

1 lebanese cucumber-well washed with the seeds removed

1 bunch of bok choy or a similar green

1/2 a lemon with the skin on-washed

A small handful of mint.

I processed this through my cold press juicer and had it straight away. It would be nice with some ice added and a small amount of ginger would add to the taste.
