Mojito Green Juice

From the Be Well Kitchen – “Mojito” Green Juice

This is one of my absolute favorite green juice recipes. It’s crisp, refreshing, and perfect for the warmer months! It has a lot of cucumber in it, which is great for hydration and for skin, and the addition of mint and basil gives it a delicious fresh flavor. To add some dark leafy greens, I use spinach in this recipe because it has a smoother and more subtle taste than other greens. The lime and ginger give it a tangy kick. Trust me on this one - it’s going to become your new favorite juice!
