Oh My Greens Juice

Oh My Greens Juice

My period can be super rough-heavy and exhausting I often gravitate towards chocolate or mac and cheese (gluten free, dairy free, but still!) which is not what my body needs to feel better. I've been trying my past several periods to increase the amount of dark greens I've been having and find juice to be the easiest way to get in a lot of amazing ingredients easily. This juice doesn't taste super green despite having swiss chard, cucumber, and moringa and is amazing to increase energy and decrease bloat and discomfort during your period. 

Hormone balancing, blood regulating, and cramp reducing-this juice is amazing to help period symptoms. Each ingredient packs a major punch with inflammation reducing Moringa and ginger, Vitamin B and iron from Swiss Chard, fiber and Vitamin C from apple, potassium from the cucumber, stomach calming lemon, and a healthy dose of fat from the coconut butter. I hope it helps you! 

Oh My Greens Juice

Prep Time: 20 Minutes

Total Recipe Time: 20 Minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 apple diced (I prefer fuji)
  • 1/2 cucumber (peeled) 
  • 1/4 cup of swiss chard (washed and dried) 
  • 1/2 teaspoon of moringa 
  • 2 tablespoons collagen protein powder 
  • 1 teaspoon of ground ginger (or 1/2 teaspoon of fresh) 
  • 1 tablespoon Pina Colada Coconut Butter (it's addicting!) 
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice (with pulp) 
  • 2 teaspoons of lime juice 
  • 2 shakes of cinnamon 
  • 5 cubes of ice 
  • 1/4 cup of water or coconut water 
  • A super fun straw to drink it with! 

Instructions: 

  • I prefer a nutribullet for this but you can put into any blender 
  • Place all ingredients in nutribullet and make sure the liquid elements have distributed throughout the cup or your ingredients won't blend 
  • Blend for 1 minute or until all ingredients are fully combined and there is very little pulp 
  • Top with ginger and serve over ice
