Spicy & Sparkling Green Juice

This delicious vegan, cucumber and herb smoothie has quite a kick of spice to it.  We’ve been making this juice lately and we love it!  It’s light and spicy, but it’s also refreshing.  This drink is perfect for sipping on a hot summer day, or perhaps to cleanse the palate after a nice meal.

GreenJuice

Smoothie
  • 1 young Thai coconut;  chilled
  • 1 medium size English Cucumber;  peeled + chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh Parsley;  finely minced
  • 1.5 Tbsp. fresh Basil;  finely minced
  • 1.5 Tbsp. fresh Mint;  finely minced
  • 1 Lemon;  juiced
  • 1/4 tsp. fine Sea Salt (we used Red Hawaiian Sea Salt)
  • 1 small JalapeƱo;  cored and seeds removed (or as much or as little heat as you can handle/we used about half)
  • cold Sparkling Water
  • optional:  Ice Cubes
  Preparations:
  • Wash and clean all fresh produce.
  • Blend the coconut “meat,” chopped cucumber, herbs, lemon juice, ice cubes, salt and jalapeno into a blender until smooth.
  • Pour the mixture into 2 tall glasses (we used 12 oz. glasses) and then fill them to the top with mineral water.  Stir more if needed and add slices of cucumber for garnish if you like.

I hope you are all having a fantastic week!
