The Liquid Lunch was on the menu at Elements, where I was juice bartender for 2 years. This is the location I became acquainted with Naturopathic Medicine, tried supplementation instead of medicine and really got dove into the natural health industry. The Liquid Lunch was my favorite shake on the menu. It’s tart, creamy, refreshing and filling. It just makes me feel I am alive! In fact, I enjoy it so much I have it for breakfast more days than not.
- ¼ cup organic carrot juice (substitute with other vegetable juice)
- ½ avocado
- 1 cup sunflower sprouts
- ½ organic apple, cored (or ½ cucumber)
- ½ lemon, squeezed
- 1 tsp spirulina or chlorella (optional)
- 1 clove garlic (optional)
Note: If you have a juicer, juice the carrots first, as fresh juice is always better.
Directions: Pour the juice into the blender. Add rest of the ingredients into the blender. Blend until smooth. Pour over ice or drink at room temperature. This juice is energizing, refreshing, detoxifying and satisfying. Most importantly it’s packed with vitamins, minerals, some proteins and healthy fats. It’s a meal of its own or on the side of a detoxifying quinoa or brown rice salad, hot or cold.
