Blender Green “Juice”

Recently, juicing has become uber popular! As much as I’d like a juicer, I know that realistically I don’t have the time to use it enough to justify the cost and space 😦 I’m extremely lucky that I live in a city that has cold pressed, fresh, organic juices readily available; however, they are expensive! So, I’ve put my $50 blender to use and created my own “juice”.

MindBodyGreen recently posted a beauty infographic about juices vs smoothies. Both have their benefits and are yummy!

The first green smoothie came about because I had eaten too much meat over the previous days and was talking to my mum about feeling “blah” and uninterested in food. Our conversation turned to what I had in my fridge and the below Vegetable Drawer Juice came about.

One thought on “Blender Green “Juice”

  1. Wow! Those actually sound awesome Alannah. I’m sure you’re feeling flushed out and lighter by now. I especially apreciate the effect of ginger and Lemon in my smoothies/juice. With the blender we also get the benefit of the fibre. MUM
