As we transition into fall, apples of every color are showing up at farmers markets. This is an exciting time of year in terms of produce, because summer fruits are phasing out just as autumn fruits are phasing in.
If you like to make juice or smoothies, apples are a gem of an ingredient. Their agreeable flavor, water content and high nutritional value can improve pretty much any green juice. They go well with kale, beets, carrots and lemons, making them the perfect partner for less-tasty “superfoods”.
Anyway, I digress.
Lately, we’ve been receiving an intriguing mix of produce from our weekly box of community-supported agriculture. Cucumbers and herbs signify the end of the summer, while apples and pears mean that autumn is approaching.
So why not combine them in one delicious, healthy, and soothing green juice? This recipe is so simple and easy, but the results are marvelous.
