No Juicer Juice–Apple, Celery, Parsley–Stress Reliever Juice

The use of a blender, or Ninja is a great alternative to an expensive juicer. Here is how I do it:

1. put 1 cup of distilled, room temp water into Ninja

2. cut up your pink lady apple, 2 stalks of celery (use all of the celery-even the yellowish, leaves), ~1 tablespoon fresh ginger, a small bunch of parsley (you don’t have to cut the parsley)

3. add all ingredients to Ninja, and add a dash of cayenne pepper (fire element)

4. blend on setting 1, then 2. blend until you see the pulp that is being flicked onto the sides of the Ninja fall down to be blended again (see video)

5.have a glass ready with  a piece of cheesecloth covering the opening

6. pour the juice and pulp onto the cheesecloth and press the juice through using a rubber spatula

7. put remaining pulp into a plastic container to freeze for compost (or whatever you want to use it for)

8. clean up (I like the Ninja because it is easier to clean than a juicer, and all its parts)

9. enjoy your juice in the morning sun

10. recite your morning mantra:

I am…

joyful

loving

patient

peaceful

whole

a shining being
