My Favorite Green Juice Recipe: Dr. Nicholas Perricone


Dr. Perricone green juice recipeThe pioneering Dr. Perricone is famous for his anti-inflammation diet books that keep skin looking young, healthy, and blemish- or wrinkle-free and his results-oriented skin-care line.

And his own diet is super clean. When we asked to peek inside the dermatologist’s fridge last year, we noticed his affinity for watercress. (It was enough to turf Times Square).

So we shouldn’t have been surprised when the uber-alkaline green reappeared here in his favorite green juice, which you can make in a juicer or blender. “Watercress is a detoxer that’s great for skin issues, like eczema and acne,” he says.

And antioxidant cinnamon in his juice recipe lowers blood sugar, which “helps prevent diabetes, the accumulation of body fat, and even wrinkles.”

One request from the good doctor: Try to choose organic produce. “The little bit more that it might cost is well worth avoiding toxic pesticides,” he says. —Melisse Gelula

The Perricone (Juice) Prescription

4 celery stalks
1 medium organic apple
1 cup watercress
A pinch of ground cinnamon
1.5 cups of water

Wash the celery, apple, and watercress thoroughly.  Place all ingredients in a good blender and blend until smooth. Serve immediately.
