Juice all ingredients using a juicer and serve. Makes about 2 cups juice.
This is a wild juice recipe where you can enjoy having some wild bitter greens in your juice without compromising on taste!
There are many varieties of sonchus (sow thistles) and wild lettuces (lactuca); both are bitter and are just great to add to the juicer. You can pick the leaves before the plant flowers (or chop it off as they are considered invasive and they will start regrowing again) or while in flower.
If you aren't familiar with sow thistles and wild lettuces, you could simply add in another handful of dandelion greens to the juice ---or just 1 handful, depending on your "tolerance" for bitter greens ;)
A note here on strawberries: they aren't so juice-friendly and will make for lots of pulp in the juice. You could therefore:
Last note: not everyone uses stems such as from dill, parsley, cilantro, etc. in their cooking. What to do? Besides composting them, great to add to the juicer! Here just the coriander stems were used, but you could go ahead and add in the whole thing. Alternatively, feel free to try with dill, parsley or a combination.
Final tidbit: to counterbalance the bitter from the greens, especially if you added in the sow thistle/wild lettuce, use apples that are sweet such as Pink Lady, Red Delicious, etc. If you don't have apricots, you can use 1 additional apple.
And yes, you can make this juice just using strawberries, apricots, apples + lettuce & cilantro and it'll be just as great tasting :)
As always, Enjoy :)
