I know, I know, the name Spicy Kale Juice doesn't sound all that appealing - but trust me when I tell you that it is really tasty. I think it's a great entry for Day #4 for our 30 Days of Juicing and Weight Watchers.
I came up with this creation after looking at this juice recipe for Spicy-Tart Kale Limeade.
Since I didn't want to have to make a special trip to the store for today's juicing recipe, I'd have to use what I already had in my refrigerator.
So, Peter's Spicy Kale Juice was born. I think an even more appropriate name might be Peter's Super Green Spicy Limeade. It has a nicer ring to it - don't you think?
The Skinny on Spicy Kale Juice
Just 4 simple ingredients are all you need: apple, kale, fresh ginger and lime.
This juice provides energy in the form of B-complex vitamins along with an abundance of iron and copper.
You'll also get some vitamin C and healthy antioxidants thanks to the fresh apple juice and lime juice. Lime juice also has some beneficial antibiotic properties.
Ginger provides the spice, but you'll also get potassium which is another essential mineral, a natural electrolyte and natural anti-inflammatory agent.
According to our calculations, each serving has about 58 calories and 2* Weight Watchers PP+. We only counted the fresh apple juice because the juice from the kale, lime and ginger provides negligible calories.
Spicy Kale Juice
- 2 apples
- 4 kale leaves
- 1 lime
- 1 tablespoon fresh ginger
- Wash all produce well. Peel the lime if desired. Peel the ginger root. Juice all ingredients and serve over ice, if desired.
