St Patty’s Green Juice

If you’re hopingΒ beer and green food coloring is the basis of this post you may be disappointed; but don’t give up on me yet! If you read my earlier post this week, Going Alkaline, you know I’m taking a stroll down vegetarian lane for the next few weeks. Feeling fab so far just in case you’re wondering!

So fab that I decided to dive head first into juicing, but I’m not a total newbie. I’ve purchased juices from time to time as I saw fit, however I’ve never ever made my own..until NOW! And I didn’t even need a juicer, I used a regular ol’ blender*!

I’ve made this particular St Patty’s Green Juice a couple of times now and I get more efficient each time. As a part of my goal to become more alkaline I plan to drink a fresh green juice a few times a week if not daily, and according to Time, that is a smart idea.

But don’t be green with envy over this tasty juice, you can make it too!

If you’re new to juicing, before you freak out over the ingredients, trust me when I say the juice tastes GOOD. For real. I don’t really focus on any one ingredient when I’m drinking it, I just taste the overall freshness of the concoction and enjoy it very much.

St Patty’s Green Juice Recipe

Gear: blender (necessary) and mesh sleeve (optional)

Tip: wash all veggies

Ingredients
1.5 cups of water
2 handfuls of kale
2 green apples, roughly chopped, discard core/seeds
1 cucumber, cut in a few pieces
2 stalks of celery, roughly chopped
1 handful of parsley
1 inch piece of ginger (peeled)
Juice of half a lemon

Directions:
Add ingredients in order listed into the blender, blend until smooth.
You can keep the pulp if you prefer, for a smoother juice you can use a mesh sleeve to eliminate pulp.
Pour in your favorite glass and enjoy!

*My Ninja blender/food processor is pictured, but I’ve also used a more common and affordable 16 speed Oster blender to make this juice.

Voila! Β If you drink a green juice during the day maybe you won’t feel so bad about the green beer at night. Detox before you retox, right?
