Green Juice (without a juicer!)

Packed with fresh fruit and nutritious veggies, this green juice tastes much like what you'd buy at a juice bar, but it's made at home in a blender and for a fraction of the cost!

Ingredients

  • 1 mini seedless cucumber*
  • 1 small apple (or half a large one)
  • 1 inch ginger
  • 1 1/2 cups packed fresh spinach
  • juice of half a lemon
  • 3/4 cup cold water

Instructions

  1. Peel the ginger and remove cores, seeds, end pieces, etc. from the apple and cucumber. Chop the apple and cucumber into smaller pieces. They don't need to be diced, just small enough that your blender can handle them.

  2. Add all ingredients to a blender (I put them in by the order listed in the ingredients list) and blend away! You'll want to get this as smooth as possible, so feel free to move the ingredients around with a spatula when they just won't budge.

  3. If you're going to keep the pulp, go ahead and serve it as soon as it's blended. If you'd rather drink it as more of a true juice, pour it through a strainer first, pressing it through to extract as much liquid as possible.

Recipe Notes

*I use mini seedless cucumbers, which I find at Aldi. Alternatively, you could use about 4-5 inches of a seedless or English cucumber, or a regular cucumber with the seeds removed.
