Serves 1, generously

INGREDIENTS
  • Half a large cucumber
  • 1 small beet
  • 1 avocado
  • 1/4 cup hemp seeds
  • Juice of 1 medium lemon
  • 2 T coconut aminos
  • 1 small clove of garlic
  • 2 pinches of cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 cup filtered water (add more, if necessary, for desired consistency)
METHOD
  1. Run the cucumber and beet through a spiralizer (I use the affordable Spirooli Spiral 3-in-1 Slicer)
