Jalapeño pepper adds a nice kick to a refreshing, immune-boosting green juice.

Good juicing takes more than tossing a bunch of produce in an extractor and hoping the resulting liquid is palatable. Take charge of your glass with Julie Morris' Superfood Juices. Her tried-and-true blends are as delicious as they are packed with vitamins and antioxidants. Start off with a spicy green juice.

How much spice do you like? In this juice recipe, you can adjust the heat level from mild (by removing all the jalapeño seeds prior to juicing), to ambitiously spicy (if you juice the pepper whole), to anywhere in between. I use this juice if I feel a cold coming on because it is low in sugar and high in immune-boosting nutrients, especially vitamin C and chlorophyll.
