3. Haven Green Juice

½ to ¾ cucumber, according to size,
and cut in half lengthwise.

Haven Tips
In cool or colder weather, add a little fresh ginger into your juice
for its warming effects and its aid to digestion.
** If you find cucumber hard to digest, then we would recommend
a 50:50 mix of watercress and pea shoots (look in the salad
section of your supermarket). This will produce a stronger
flavoured but nutritious green juice.
