We are almost to the end of January, day 18 of the Daniel Fast. Congratulations, you are in the final few days. Maybe your 21 days have been crazy busy outside of your prayer time. Running here and there – people all around you sick because of the crazy weather patterns, an endless pile of a To do list. When any of these life interruptions occur, I like to make it a point to make my Mighty Green Conqueror Juice. It helps detox while giving me a ton of energy and just helps me feel overall refreshed. I mean, come one now, Conqueror is in the title, how can it not empower you? Below is my take on the Mighty Green Conqueror Juice for when you just need that extra energy or to remind yourself, that you are MORE THAN A CONQUEROR:
Mighty Green Conqueror Juice Or Smoothie
1 cucumber peeled
6 carrots, cleaned, and/or peeled (since I use organic carrots, I just brush wash clean)
8 stalks of celery
2 apples (mine were really small this time, otherwise, one will suffice, two if you want it sweeter)
4 leaves of kale, destemmed
2 leaves of collards, destemmed
half a lemon with the rind cut off
1 inch piece of ginger, peeled
*see note below
Rinse off all fruits and veggies, chop, juice or place in a high speed blender and Enjoy!
*note: Depending on what type of juicer you have, will depend on the size that you need to cut your fruit and veggies. Per my juicer, I have the Huron Elite, it says about an inch to inch half in size. For the kale and collards, after they are destemmed or while I am destemming them, I rip them into pieces around an 1-2 inches. This is a rather base recipe for me though it can vary, usually I do not have collards on hand, but may have a head of romaine lettuce along with the kale. I personally do not add more then one fruit because of the sweetness and I like my green juices to be good, but not too sweet. Remember fruits have a lot of natural sugars and could tank your blood sugar if you are not careful or have too much of it at once. I like to keep my juices at a ratio of at least 2 veggies for 1 fruit, but as you will see in the future posts, there are some very tasty recipes that do not follow that ratio.
It may be a funky dark green juice or smoothie in color, but this juice/smoothie makes me a Mighty Conqueror and it is a perfect pick up when you are feeling run down, need to detox, need a burst of energy or just want a healthy drink. Happy Juicing fellow Conquerors!
may blessings abound
P.S:…this is important.
