It's that time of year with spring around the corner to not only do spring cleaning in the house but to cleanse out the body too. I love, love, love "green juice"! It is so healthy for you, refreshing and cleansing at the same time. Now, I like making this in the Vitamix or my juicer. Either way, you'll be getting lots of health benefits. Even better if the veggies come from your own garden! This is a simple green juice to start out with if you have never had any before. The apple gives a little sweetness which my husband Anthony enjoys so I always add it.
1Prep your veggies...rinse them, chop them if you want and slice up your apple too. ---Try if you can to get organic but if not you can rinse your veggies with a vinegar solution to get off some of the chemicals.
2Get out your Vitamix or juicer...whichever you have and make some "stache" juice. Add your greens and apple along with 1/2 cup of water. Blend well and add more water if you want.
*** If making in the Vitamix this will include the fiber which makes this a thick juice just add more water if necessary.
*** If made in your juicer it will be pure and thin juice and easy to drink.
3Ready to pour that beautiful green juice.
4Drink up and sport your green stache. lol --- We drink this up the same day it is made. I know they say it can last for several days but I prefer to make enough for daily use. Then, fresh juice the next day.
5Sometimes I let the dogs have just a little green juice too.
