We like our green juices with a kick, so we add ginger and a slice of jalapeño to this one. Not sure about the spice? This juice is equally delicious without the chile pepper.

1 small lemon, scrubbed
One medium bunch of curly kale, stemmed
3 Persian cucumbers
One 1-inch piece peeled fresh ginger
3/4 cup cilantro leaves
1/4-inch jalapeño piece (optional)
Ice, for serving
How to Make It
Using a small sharp knife, peel the lemon, removing all of the bitter white pith. In an electric juicer, juice the kale with the lemon, cucumbers, ginger, cilantro and, if using, the jalapeño. Season the juice with a pinch of salt and serve over ice.
The juice can be refrigerated overnight.
