  • One-half lemon
  • Variety of herbs: Parsley (two stalks); Curry Leaves (5 leaves); Cilantro (two stalks); Mint (5 leaves); Beet Green (3 leaves)

  2. Wash, peel and chop the apple, beet and carrot.

  4. Have a clean blender ready to blend. Add 1 cup of water to the blender, lemon juice, chopped apple, beet and carrot. Blend.
  5. Next check the thickness of the juice. If too thick, add half a cup of water and add the chopped herbs. Blend again. Now the juice is done.
  6. Keep the sieve on a bowl and pour the juice. Use the back of the spoon to press the blended pulp to squeeze out the juice.
  7. Your juice is done! Relish and enjoy this nectar.

Note: Feel free to add a pinch of black pepper powder if you like a hint of spice or 1⁄4 teaspoon of chia seeds.
