maya’s rainbow juice

Hi everyone, as we’ve mentioned in previous posts on social media, our close friend Maya was staying with us for the past two months while she battles cancer, and yesterday she flew home to Oregon to get more treatment. We took good care of her, making organic juices every day, and we are honored to share our recipe with you. Thank you so much to Melissa’s Produce for delivering a weekly Organic Family Box of produce to our home, which we used to make this vibrant drink. These abundant shipments of fruits and vegetables have helped minimize our trips to the grocery store, and are a great way to have fresh produce delivered right to your doorstep—no masks or gloves necessary.

Maya’s Rainbow Juice
Serves 2 to 3

6 celery stalks
2 green apples, cut into quarters
2 medium carrots
1 large red beet, with the greens
2 large kale leaves
2 large chard leaves
1 two-inch piece of ginger
1/2 of a lemon, peel included
1 garlic clove (optional)

Use an electric juicer to juice all the ingredients together. Stir well to combine, then serve. Any leftover juice can be refrigerated in a sealed container for up to 3 days, simply stir well before serving.
