Apple, Lemon, Ginger Juice

I’m really enjoying fresh juices at the moment, and this has to be one of the most refreshing and delicious that I’ve made so far. Green juices, made from green vegetables, are the most alkalizing and nutritious and that’s ideally what you want to drink the most of on a daily basis. But this apple, lemon and ginger juice is a great cleansing juice and good in smaller quantities.

It’s high in Vitamins A, B and C, cleanses the liver and will help remove mucus from the body. Apples and lemons have anti-cancer properties and are high in antioxidants and flavonoids. In lemons these anti-cancer compounds are found in the fruit, pith, peel, seeds and juice, with the highest concentration in the pith and lemon rind, so this juice is a great way to take them in. Lemons also help lower cholesterol and are a great source of vitamin C. They have a beneficial effect on the liver, bile and digestion. Half a lemon juice daily raises the citrate level of your blood which may help dissolve kidney stones. Apples help lower the risk of heart attack and stroke and assist bowel function. Ginger helps to soothe upset stomach, overcome nausea (including morning sickness), vertigo and motion sickness, fights colds and improves circulation. In some cases has been found to alleviate symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis and can help with flatulence and improve digestion.

Apple, Lemon, Ginger Juice

Apple, Lemon, Ginger Juice

Ingredients (all organic where possible):

2-3 apples (granny smith or golden delicious work best, organic if possible)
1/2 lemon (organic is best of course, but at least try to get one that hasn’t been waxed)
1 piece fresh ginger about 1 inch long

Instructions:

Throw the 1/2 lemon in the juicer, seeds, peel and all. Add the ginger. I follow up with the apples to make sure everything else gets pushed through. I remove the stems and cut the apples into quarters because the input chute to my juicer is quite small, but if your juicer can handle it just remove the apple stems.

Serve over ice and drink immediately.

Makes about 1 glass of juice.

Variations:

  • Add a few mint leaves to the juicer
  • Add a handful of strawberries to the juicer

    Hello, the apple, lemon, and ginger juice sounds delicious and I am looking forward to trying it. However, I was wonder if limes would serve as the same benefits of the lemon? Please advise.

    • Donna says:

      Hi Tonia, thanks for asking. Yes limes will have the same, or very similar benefits. Limes are more plentiful where I am, and I love them even more than lemons (which I adore), so I often use them interchangeably in recipes. :)

    I don’t have a juicer, just a blender. Starting a few months ago, I have a breakfast drink of 1/5 pineapple, 1 banana, 1 apple, 1 orange, 1/4 cucumber, green tea liquid, 4 tablespoons yoghurt, 1 teaspoon psyllium fibre and 1 tablespoon DF Silica.

    My question is, can I use my blender and still throw in the whole lemon (seeds, rind and all?) I thought there was soemthing unhealthy about eating lemon and/or orange rinds?

    • Trevor says:

      I would try using cheese cloth, a nutmilk bag, or a paint strainer bag. You have to filter the small fibers so you don’t end up with an upset stomach. But yes rinds and all for extra nutrients, lemon rinds make for a more sour taste.
