I’m a big time smoothie drinker. I drink one nearly every morning for breakfast and usually after a workout. As much as I love smoothies, I like to switch it up every once in a while and throw a green juice into the mix. They make me feel super energized. Not the jittery kind of energy, like when you drink a little too much coffee either. It’s more like a refreshing, restorative kind of energy. If that makes any sense. It’s hard to explain. You’ll just have to try it yourself!
We’ll start with the juicer I use. The first juicer I bought was a Juiceman. This juicer works great if you’re only making a small amount of juice. I used it for about 3 years before I decided to buy one that could hold more pulp/produce more juice in one use. There just isn’t much room for pulp in the Juiceman and I basically got tired of cleaning it out so much. It served me well for the time and I had it and it still worked great when I passed it on to the next owner.
After quite a bit of research, I decided to fork over some extra cash and get a Breville Juicer. I ❤ it. It makes so much more juice and is so easy to clean. I’ve had it for a couple of years now and have no complaints. If you need some help deciding what juicer to buy I definitely recommend checking out Kris Carr’s blog post here. And while you’re there, check out her entire site too! She is one of my favorites.
Onto the juice!
I like this recipe because there are only 4 ingredients involved and it tastes so good. Here’s what you’ll need:
