As 300 million people across North America rely on their coffee to get them started each day, I think it is time to introduce a much healthier alternative to get your jump start.


The purpose of this juice recipe is to provide a quick shot of energy that naturally stimulates your bowels, brain, and body. The combination of chlorophyll, enzymes, vitamin C, and circulatory promoting spice gives the body a serious wake up call. Be warned…you may want to drink and allow 5-15 minutes before removing yourself from the vicinity of a bathroom.

Equipment Required
  • Quality juicer
  • 1 green apple
  • 1 small piece of ginger (1 inch)
  • 1 small piece of turmeric (1 inch)
  • 1 medium lemon
  • 1 medium lime
  • 1 large handful of dandelion greens or kale
  • 1 small handful of fresh basil leaves
  • A pinch of ground cayenne pepper
  • Peel lemon and lime then add all whole food ingredients, in pieces your juicer can handle
  • Add a dash of cayenne, and stir into mixture
  • A great way to start your day!
