5 Green Juice Recipes

Nothing better than a tall glass of green juice to kick off the day! Okay, I get that green juice may not be the most appetizing drink on the planet, but why knock it if you haven’t tried it? You can reap the benefits of fruits and veggies without having to actually chew them, making it great for individuals who have a hard time meeting their daily intake requirements, or those are on the move. So dust off the old juicer sitting in the back of the pantry, and let’s go green.

I know what you are thinking now. I can hear it all the way from here: BUT I DON’T HAVE A JUICER, BIANCA. Yes, these can run fairly expensive. Kermit was right when he sang “it’s not easy being green,” right? [serious Muppet fan over here… anyways] Juicing is not for everyone. HOWEVER, if you know that you will be juicing frequently, this is an investment – for your health and self. If I were you, I would constantly check out Amazon for deals, especially around the holidays! I’m sure Black Friday will have some deals for ya.

So, what types of greens can you put in your green juice? There are plenty to choose from! Common options include: spinach, kale, broccoli, swiss chard, and celery. Those who are looking for a big green boost should look into the benefits of wheatgrass, a super green. To get you started, I have a few green juice recipes to share with you.
