Excerpt from “The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Juice Fasting”
The simple ingredients in this fresh green juice create an exotic combination. This sweet, herbal drink is a wonderful departure from mundane juice blends.
5 large Fuji apples, cored and sliced
1 (2-in.) piece peeled fresh ginger
1 medium lime, outer rind removed, white pith intact, and sectioned
20 medium-large fresh basil leaves
7 large sprigs cilantro
1. In a low-rpm juicer, alternate pressing Fuji apple slices, lime sections, ginger, basil leaves, and cilantro.
2. Stir and serve immediately.
This juice is served in Oregon’s Blossoming Lotus restaurant, co-owned by our very own Bo Rinaldi. This is an all-time favorite signature offering in the restaurant and is revered for its Thai-inspired flavors.
