Build a Thriving Wellness Business With the Power of Juice
Kickin’ Green Machine
This satisfying green juice, with its added kick of cayenne pepper, defines the old expression “get up and go.” You’ll love the way the cucumber mellows the flavor while the lemon and ginger provide a complementary zing.
Cayenne pepper improves blood circulation, among other benefits. Both the kale and spinach provide an incredible energy boost.
