Green Juice

April 2, 2009

I’ve been wanting to try homemade juice for awhile.  We don’t have a juicer but we were happy when we figured out that a blender worked just as well.  Our tiny kitchen just didn’t have any more room for one more appliance! My sister had given her a recipe for one of her favorite juices, but we didn’t have the ingredients in our refrigerator and we were just too lazy to go to the store.   So we improvised and ended up with this very tasty green juice.

This is such an easy way to eat vegetables and greens! It is too bad my mom didn’t think of this when she was little… it would have saved a lot of arguments over eating vegetables for dinner.   We didn’t have any apples in the apartment, which seem to be a staple ingredient in most of the juice recipes we found online.  So we ended up going with spinach, carrots, banana and celery.  You could add some sweetner if you want it, but we thought it was great just as it is.

We found this great site with a bunch of combination ideas.  We will definitely keep whipping up these healthy juices.   If you come up with your own combination and want to include celery, definitely go light on the celery – it has a very strong flavor in the juice that could easily overpower the other ingredients.

Green Juice – Spinach, Carrot, Banana and Celery
 

Ingredients:

2 handfuls of spinach

1 handful of baby grapes

1 very ripe banana

1/2 – 3/4 stalk of celery, cut into large pieces

3 cubes of ice

water

Directions:

Place the vegetables and fruit in a blender.  Add ice.  Cover with water.  Blend for a good 5 minutes or until there are no more small chunks.  Pour into a tall glass and enjoy.   If you have leftovers, just keep in the refrigerator and you can quickly refresh it by blending it with a few more ice cubes.
