I’m on my third juicer. I bought my first one about 10 years ago and it was the cheapest one I could find. It was quick to juice and kind of easy to clean, but I got bored with it and gave it away. The second one was a gift from Dennis a few years ago. It’s a pain to clean and is too tall to fit under the kitchen cabinets on the counter, so I used it once and put it in the pantry to be forgotten about. My most recent juicer was sent to me by Tribest to review. It’s a slow masticating juicer (just like juicer number 2), so it takes a while to chop the veggies and juice everything, but it’s not too difficult to clean, and it fits on the counter nicely. Since this is a new gadget, I’ve been using it fairly often, and I’m hoping to stay in the habit. Here is my favorite green juice recipe, and one that I’ve been making often. I think even people who say they don’t like green juice will enjoy this drink!
Don’t throw away your pulp! I’ll have a recipe that uses it next week.
My Favorite Green Juice
- 1 head of romaine lettuce
- 2 cups baby spinach tightly packed
- 1/2 cucumber
- 4 celery stalks
- 1 lemon pealed
- 1 apple cored
Chop veggies according to the type of juicer you have if its a slow masticating juicer, the pieces need to be on the smaller side. If it’s a high-speed blade juicer, the pieces can be larger.
Run everything through your juicer, starting with the leafy greens.
