Apple, Ginger and Mint Juice - A cleansing juice.....

                            Running behind my kid with a little ginger juice is like running a marathon for me. I remember my amma(mother) giving me ginger juice at least once in a month, when I was a kid. I will just run out from my glass of ginger juice. But my sister will have this juice without any hesitation. When small, my sister was fond of all sour, bitter, astringent, pungent tasting food.

                          I gave a try of including ginger in apple juice. And my try didn't go waste. On the day of my trial I had some mint leaves. So included them also for the juice. The juice was more than the previous one.

                                 The ginger is a great cleanser/detox agent, with many anti-oxidants in it. Mint is another source of antioxidant, which also aids in digestion. Both ginger and mint, have much more benefits.

Prep time 15 mins
Cooking time Nil


1 glass Apple Juice
1 inch sized Ginger
1/4 cup Mint Leaves
1 tsp Honey (optional)


1. Wash the ginger deskin and chop it. Wash the mint leaves.

2. Then in a blender, put the ginger and mint, blend it by adding a very little amount of water (so to extract juice).

3. Now strain the extracted juice and add with the apple juice. Add honey if needed.

4. You can top with ice cubes if needed.

  • Instead of apple juice, you can use apple as a whole also. But should not strain. It becomes a smoothie.

                                       A healthy detox/ cleansing juice is ready. It will surely more than your normal apple juice.
