Lemon-Ginger Zapper

This juice has a definite zing. It's a good source of vitamin C and electrolytes, especially potassium, thanks to the coconut water. Be sure to drink your juice as soon as possible after it is made for the most nutritious bang. Adding chia seeds helps replace the fiber that is lost in the juicing process.
