I have big news over here, friends, I got a juicer for my birthday. Thrilled is a serious understatement. Obviously the first thing I did was place a huge Fresh Direct (groceries delivered to your door, aka heaven) order of fruits and veggies to juice. The first juice I wanted to tackle would be the standard green juice for breakfast. I present to you a green juice recipe, a la…me.
One of my major complaints with green juices is the green taste. I mean, it doesn’t bother me a ton, but I’d rather drink something tasty than something that tastes like raw kale (I hate raw kale). The pineapple in this really adds sweetness and balances out the earthy taste of the kale and spinach. I’ve also made it with grapefruit for a more citrusy taste (and also because I was out of pineapple).
The measurements are all very, very exact so if you don’t follow this to a “t”, you will ruin your life. Obviously, I’m kidding.
GREEN JUICE a la CHRISTIN
1 handful of organic kale
1 handful of organic spinach
1/2 organic cucumber
1/4 – 1/2 lime (depending on how much you like lime)
1. Get excited.
2. Get your juicer out.
3. Alternate juicing the leafy greens with the softer ingredients, this helps a lot.
4. Drink up.
5. If you’re really smart, you won’t eat a cheeseburger for lunch.
