This juice cleansing recipe has a lot going on and makes for a delicious recipe in general. I like to use sweeter green or red grapes in this recipe, as the juice is mostly cucumber so like to try to boost the flavor as much as I can. If you are juicing for weight loss this recipe is great as it is relatively low in calories but you get to enjoy the subtle sweetness of the grapes.
I like to add mint to as many recipes as I can as it adds an interesting depth to the recipe and mint is wonderfully energizing and good for your health in general. The star of this recipe is the nutrient dense, chlorophyll rich, alkalizing wheatgrass. Most health food stores these days seem to have live wheatgrass in the refrigerated section, or you can find freeze dried wheatgrass juice powder as an alternative. You can also substitute other nutrient dense alternatives like barley grass. The grape juice helps cover up the taste of the wheatgrass and some types actually add a subtle sweetness to the finished juice.
2 – 3 cups of sweet green or red grapes
2-3 sprigs of mint
1/2 small punnet of wheatgrass or equivalent powder (about 1 cup)
Wash and process the ingredients as you typically would and for what fits best in your juicer. Add the wheatgrass and mint through first so the other more water dense ingredients help extract as much as possible. De-stem the grapes and add through followed by the cucumber.
