Get-You-Going Green Juice

Christen in the Kitchen’s Green Juice

Cold-pressed juices are hot right now.

About a year ago, I splurged on a juicer, and I regularly make this green juice. It’s full of vitamins and minerals, and is a great jump-start to the morning. I use lemon and ginger in almost of my juice recipes (the lemon for acidity and the ginger for some heat).

I try to keep the sweet fruits to a minimum in juices, and just use primarily vegetables and herbs, especially dark, leafy greens.

A note about juicing: wash everything well and buy organic. You’ll just be pushing those pesticides right into your drink.
