I do find most leaves to be very bitter, that said, the sweetness of the orange juice & freshness of the cucumber work really well against the bitter flavour from the leaves, the avocado gives it that silky finish.
I do find this recipe very cleansing on the pallet & easy to eat.
- 450g Organic Romaine Lettuce
- 100g Organic Avocado
- 300g Organic Cucumber
- 200ml Organic Orange Juice
- (Keep the intake Natural – No Salt)
Cut & Wash the lettuce & cucumber, peel & chop the avocado then add to the liquidiser along with the orange juice – Blend & consume immediately – Less or more liquid may be added dependent on personal choice.
Using high quantities of fruit produces a rich sweet flavour, also allowing me the required daily consumption to maintain optimum levels of energy throughout the day.
If the consistency is too thick you can always add some raw organic coconut water, spring water even freshly squeezed orange juice to dilute to your preference.
Do not forget all fruits will be variable with juice/water content & sweetness, so have a play adding more of one fruit or another with additional juice when necessary – there are no rules.
