Green Juice

Easy Green Juice

This is one of my favorite green juices, and if you’ve never juiced before, it’s ideal for a beginner. Drinking a green juice in the morning is like hitting the reset button on your health, and you’ll be surprised to feel the incredible boost of energy you feel as your body’s way of saying ‘thank you’.

The Blender Girl developed this recipe for us because, as a meal planning service focused on dinner, I also want to provide a our community with recipes that reveal the path to health and wellness in every food we consume. Blender juices or morning smoothies packed with vitamins and nutrients are a super easy second step in a healthy lifestyle once you conquer dinner!

Cucumber Apple Ginger Juice

Juicing or blending fruits and vegetables allows your body to more easily absorb nutrients, and offers an extremely efficient way to consume more fruits and vegetables each day. I love this recipe because you don’t need a juicer or any fancy equipment. A simple blender will do the trick.

The sweetness from the apples and the fresh cucumber essence balanced by a bit of ginger spice makes getting a full serving of fruit and veggies tastes refreshing and delicious. This recipe provides a huge hit of fiber, iron, vitamin C and folate.

If you need to add an extra bit of apple or even a carrot or two to this one for sweetness, go for it!
