Detoxifying Green Juice

This juice will help detoxify your body and allow you to easily fit more greens into your day. Ideally, drink this at room temperature until the weather has warmed up. The chia seeds in this recipe are not only detoxifying but a complete protein. The amounts are approximate so adjust according to your preferences. A high-powered blender is helpful to create a smooth texture.

Makes 2 servings


2 cups of filtered water

1 green apple, cored

½ lime, squeezed

1 TBS chia seeds

1 cup collard green leaves, packed (stem removed)

1/8 cup parsley

1 banana*


Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth. Drink immediately. If are going to drink it the following day, know that the chia seeds can thicken the juice. You can add water to thin it if needed or add the chia seeds immediately before drinking.

*If you can add only ½ of a banana and still enjoy the flavor, make this change as it reduces your natural sugar intake.
