This quick and easy recipe for healthy green vegetable juice that is made in a BLENDER as opposed to a juicer, gives you the option to strain the juice for a thinner consistency, or just drink it straight from the blender with all of that yummy, nutritious pulp!
Mr. Wishes and I have been toying with the idea of buying a juicer for a while now. The problem is, they are SO expensive (for the high quality brands which is probably what we would want to go with). We just have a hard time justifying the large cost of something we know will hardly ever get used and just sit in a dark cupboard somewhere most of the year. Also, buying the juices already made at a juice bar or grocery store are pretty pricey… so it definitely pays to learn how to make these drinks at home. There are SO many health benefits to juicing (not to mention the super energy boosts you get from drinking the juice), so when I saw this post on a blog I follow and love (jusataste.com) about making green juice in a blender I knew it was going to be a winner. I changed it a little bit to my liking, and you can do the same – go ahead and throw in any green veggies that you love.
I don’t know why I have never thought to make green juice in a blender and pour it through a strainer. This is definitely much cheaper than buying a juicer. Although it may not give you the exact same results as a juicer, I think it’s a great substitute! And like I said above, you don’t even have to strain it and lose the nutritional benefits of all the good stuff that’s in the pulp. If you aren’t looking to do an actual juice cleanse and just want a healthy snack or breakfast, drink it as a smoothie – that’s what I did this time around.
