Guava Greens Juice

This is my #firstpost using #Vine, the new video app from Twitter. Vine allows you to create quick 6 second videos that can be shared via Vine or through Twitter. You do have to have your Twitter account connected to it, so it can also be shared via your Twitter feed. I think it’s the perfect medium for recipes and “how-to” videos. And the simplest recipes are for juices and smoothies of course which is why I chose to use a juicer recipe as my first Vine post. All you need are a few fresh and raw ingredients and that blender or juicer to do the trick.
So here’s the first one for Guava Greens – a juice with a chock full of greens and what I like to call “liquid gold” as it’s so good for you:)
1 green apple
1 medium bunch spinach
1 lemon (peeled) – optional
1/2 inch ginger – optional
Chop the fruits into bite sized pieces. Turn the juicer on and slowly add the pieces to the mouth of the juicer. Drink it fresh or store in a glass bottle or mason jar with a lid in the refrigerator.
With green juices it’s best to drink it as soon as possible. Storing it in a mason jar filled to the top and with a lid helps keep it for a few hours in the refrigerator without oxidizing too much. If you are using a centrifugal juicer, do make sure you drink it quickly to prevent quicker oxidation.
Let me know how you find these bite sized videos. If you like these, follow me on Twitter as well @rozkakhana
