I’m not a fan of juice cleanses, but sometimes I crave a cold, flavorful green juice. It’s a great way to squeeze in more greens, and it can taste super delicious. If you’ve ever made fresh juice at home, you know it can be quite a process. So, if you don’t want to drag out the juicer (or don’t want to invest in one in the first place), this recipe is for you. My Blender Green Juice gives you the experience of drinking a tall glass of greens – no juicer required!
Let’s look at some of the ingredients in this Blender Green Juice:
