Spicy Citrus Juice

Last month Ryan and I did some cleansing.  For two plus weeks we ate all raw and as part of that we did the 7 day Arise and Shine Cleanse.  It felt great to have a......well......a......... Spring Cleaning!  Along with the raw foods we did a lot of raw juices.  I have not done a lot of raw juicing but found I really liked it!  We are still doing some juices a few times a week, smoothies too and eating high raw just because we like it!  That's the funny thing about cleansing when the body is nice and cleaned out it craves what it needs.....heavy rich desserts and foods, even the healthified kind are less appealing (notice I said less.....we still like 'em ;) compared to whole raw food nutrition.

I'm excited to post some of our favorite raw food and juice recipes!  I'm starting with this one because we loved it!  It is super healthy, super tasty (in a very healthy sort of way) and super cleansing! (did you know cilantro even helps clean our heavy metals from you body)  Enjoy this recipe and watch for more of our favorite raw food recipes!

Spicy Citrus Juice
3-4 Large carrots
1 Large handful spinach and/or 2 leaves of Kale
1 green apple
2 Fuji or other pink to red apples
2 Large Oranges, peeled
2 stalks celery
1 small bunch cilantro (about half of a bunch that you get in the store)
1/2 jalapeno (optional but I like it ;)

Wash remove stems and quarter fruit.  Process through juicer.  I like to poor pour the juice over ice and drink.  The pulp is great for the compost bin!

Don't you mean "pour" the juice? : )
