The Perfect Blender Green Juice. Subtly sweet and deliciously balanced. This truly is the perfect juice. The best part is it’s easy to make in a blender not a juicer. 

When I first went plant based I dived straight into a Whole Foods Plant Based Diet. I bought a juicer off craigslist that was bulky and old and every week I would make a big batch of fresh juice. 

Now that juice was delicious and I loved it but you know what I hated that darn bulky juicer. I am sure there are some better models out there but this thing was a pain to use and clean. 

This annoyance got me thinking there had to be a better way. And thus The Perfect Blender Green Juice was born. Easy to make, easy clean up and delicious to drink. 

Perfection.

Ingredient Notes:

  • Apple – Use whatever brand you like to eat. I generally buy Gala. 
  • Cucumber – No need to peel the skins have all the nutrients. Buy organic if you can. 
  • Spinach – I use baby spinach but fresh regular leaf spinach will work as well. 
  • Kale – I buy the Lacinato Kale also known as Dinosaur Kale. 
  • Parsley – Flat Leaf works best. 
  • Pineapple – Leave the core intact it has the most nutrients. It will blend up just fine. 
  • Coconut Water – Make sure you use a unsweetened coconut water. The only ingredient should be coconut water. 
  • Water – This helps the blending process along.
