Sunkist Green Citrus Juice
This juice is high in vitamins C, K, and A, is high in chlorophyll, calcium and iron, and is a great detoxifier.
Makes 2 – 4 servings
- 1 bunch green kale, ends trimmed
- 1 green apple, cut into quarters
- 1 cup freshly squeezed Sunkist® mandarin orange juice or Sunkist navel orange juice, or a combination of both*

Juice the kale and green apple in a home juicer. Juice the Sunkist citrus by hand or with a citrus juicer. Combine juices in a pitcher. Serve well-chilled or over ice.
