- 1 or 2 red or green apple (green apples recommended, but if you prefer some sweetness, use the red apples)
- 1 medium-sized cucumber
- 5 sticks of asparagus
Green apples are better for this recipe, but if you like it a little sweet, use red apples. Asparagus is detoxifying and cleansing for the kidneys. Include asparagus juice with your juicing at least once every week.
I’ve been told that cucumbers is “just water”. Well yes and no, but that’s the beauty of cucumbers. It’s superior water with lots of minerals that are alkalizing and supplies the necessary electrolytes that restores hydration to your body.
Together with the asparagus, it helps to reduce water retention and have toxins filtered and eliminated properly through the kidneys. It has high content of anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory effect.
Be warned though, after drinking this juice, you may pass out strong odor urine. Don’t worry when this happens but just be glad that your kidneys are functioning well and detoxification is nicely taking place.
Makes about 400 ml worth of green juice.
A masticating juicer is best for extracting asparagus and cucumber. It produces high juice yield.
Juicer used to make this juice: Alpha Juicer (only available in Malaysia).
