Super-Green Wellness Shot

Super-Green Wellness Shot

We’re on the brink of spring (yay!), but with it brings wonky weather, the onset of coughs and colds, and just generally feeling crabby.

Just the thing to sweep the cobwebs away, we’ve got a super-charged wellness shot that is packed with so much green power and citrus goodness, it’ll rev that tired engine of yours and put a the pep back in your step.

We’ve chosen three our of favorite greens — kale, spinach, and Swiss chard — but feel free to replace them with whatever greens you have at hand.

Now, we urge you to not skip this step because the blend of lemon and lime juice will make this baby taste so much better and disguise any bitterness the greens and the celery may have on your juice.

The kiwi adds even more vitamin C, and with the apple, gives a sweet coating to the cayenne pepper, which lends extra detox power.

Don’t forget a scoop of Sparkle Skin Boost for a skin boost and extra citrus flavor — trust us, the more, the better for this super-green concoction.

 

Recipe:

  • 1-2 large kale leaves
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 1-2 Swiss chard leaves
  • ½ green apple
  • 1 ripe kiwi
  • 1 celery stalk
  • 1 small cucumber
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • Juice of half a lime
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 1 cup filtered water
  • 1 scoop of Sparkle Skin Boost with Verisol

 

Put all the ingredients in a high-speed blender and blend till smooth. Strain the juice from the pulp using a baking sieve. Tip: If your blender is having a bit of trouble moving all the produce, add a bit more water.

Or if you have a juicer, nix the water and add more fruit and veggies to make up the volume of juice, then add Sparkle Collagen after.
