My Favorite Green Juice Recipe

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!
