Even though I don’t juice nearly as often as I used to (since I became the fanatic of blending and green smoothies, which have some important advantages over juicing), I do love green juices, usually done with whatever I happen to have in my fridge and pantry.
Usually, for my juices I tend to use the ingredients that I would not use in my smoothies (at least not in any significant quantities), such as cabbage, broccoli (check out this cabbage-broccoli juice), beets, carrots, sweet potatoes and other dense vegetables. In this respect, definitely juicing has an advantage over blending (read more about juicing vs. blending here), as it allows you to consume more of the veggies that you don’t normally eat.
This green juice, however, uses all the ingredients that can be used for a smoothie, so you can really choose between what you are in the mood for: juicing or blending.
It’s called Green Happy Juice because sipping it will literally makes you smile.
I hope you enjoy it as much!
Green Happy Juice (or Smoothie) to Make You Smile
2 small granny smith apples
4-5 stalks of celery
1 handful of watercress
1 handful of kale
1 handful of parsley
Pass it though your juicer, or blend in your blender with 1 cup water.
Pour into a pretty glass, sip and smile!
The Juicer I’m Using
There are many great juicers on the market and deciding which is the best juicer to buy may be difficult. I recently upgraded my old juicer to Breville Juice JE98XL Fountain Plus. I’m really happy with it so far. By the way, it’s the same juicer that Joe Cross used in his 60 day fast in the Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead documentary. (If you haven’t seen it already – you have to watch it. It will give you even more motivation to start juicing regularly).
