LEMON CHIA ELIXIR: JUICE RECIPE

LEMON CHIA ELIXIR: JUICE RECIPE

Hi Friends! Welcome back to the blog! Today I’m sharing another recipe from my book The 5 Day Juicing Diet. This Lemon Chia Elixir is low sugar, gut health friendly and delicious! 

This fun juice is packed with a lemony flavor and nutritional chia seeds. Lemons support skin health and digestion, freshen breath, and are packed with the antioxidant vitamin C. It’s a wonderful fruit to incorporate into your morning routine. The chia seeds are added after the produce has been juiced—they expand in liquid to create a gel-like consistency, which is very satiating. Chia can bind to dietary toxins and fats like cholesterol, and then helps excrete them. Plus, chia seeds contain fiber, healthy omega-3 fats, and even a little protein.

Ingredients
  1. 5 cups romain lettuce
  2. 1 (1-inch) piece of fresh ginger
  3. 1 green apple, cored
  4. 1 teaspoon whole chia seeds
  5. 1 lemon

  2. Cut the ingredients to a size appropriate for your juicer
  3. Process all the ingredients in the juicer
  4. Add chia seeds to juice & stir

Notes
  1. Ingredient Tip: Lemon peel is loaded with calcium, potassium, and vitamin C. You can juice the entire lemon, with the peel, to benefit from this additional nutrition. Note that lemon peel has a slightly bitter flavor profile.
  2. Substitution Tip: This elixir is great with any citrus; try oranges, grapefruits, or even limes.
  3. Serving Tip: Freeze the juice into ice cubes to give chilled juice extra nutrition, or to add flavor and nutrition to your drinking water.
