Start your morning with this deliciously fresh and refreshing green juice!
Sure you’ve heard it before, have dhudhi ki juice to lose weight, honey water to release toxins and apple cider vinegar to promote gut health. There are an endless number of drinks we’ve been told to start our day with. I won’t make any outrageous claims about this drink but I will say that everything that goes into it is good for you and it’s one of the green juices that tastes good!
Tomatoes, mint and coriander are great sources of antioxidants and as we know, antioxidants can help prevent cell damage, especially in your skin. I had this drink for a whole month straight and felt a noticeable change in my skin. Changes to skin aside, the ingredients are really great, especially on an empty stomach. Tomatoes are a good source of several vitamins including Vitamin C, K and Potassium. Coriander leaves are also rich in antioxidants and along with mint leaves, you get a good dose of greens first thing in the morning.
Since this recipe utilises a lot of leaves, it’s important to have a good blender that can do the job perfectly for you. The Nutri-blend is an absolute favourite of mine. It’s so compact that I can even travel with it! Sometimes you need a good green juice no matter where you are! But don’t let its small size fool you because it’s got a high speed of 22000 RPM, twice that of regular mixers. I like to add a bit of the coriander stem to my green juice, which can be difficult to grind at times. However with the Nutri-blend, I get a smooth juice in no time.
You can add more or less water while blending the juice based on your preference. It tastes great, chunky and smooth but I would advise against straining the juice. If you strain it, you’ll lose all that nutritional goodness. The black pepper adds a bit of flavour to the juice but you can also add black salt or chaat masala if you like.
