Green Blender Juice – No juicer? No problem! Get the healthy nutrients of green juice along with beneficial fiber all with the ease of your blender.
Sometimes I just don’t feel like getting out my juicer. Don’t get me wrong – I LOVE my juicer and it’s incredibly easy to clean – but it still doesn’t compare with the ease of a blender. There are less components to clean on the blender and it takes a lot less produce to make a decent size serving. That’s where blender juice comes in. It’s thin like juice (not as thin as from a juicer though), contains no added sweeteners and has the added benefit of healthy fiber (something you don’t get with a juicer).
No Juicer, No Problem
You could take it one step further if really don’t want the pulp (fiber) in there and pour it through a fine mesh strainer, discarding the pulp left behind. If you’ve got a good blender though (I LOVE my Vitamix) your blender juice won’t taste pulpy, not with this particular juice recipe anyway.
As an added bonus, you can turn it into a smoothie on a whim by adding 1 or 2 bananas, which will thicken it right up!
Green Blender Juice
We’ve enjoyed this Green Blender Juice 3 times this past week. The kids love it and keep asking for more. I’m certainly not going to argue with that request! It’s like those apple grape juice boxes you see in the store, but with added kale and no sweeteners. All the kids needs to know, however, is that it tastes like apple white grape juice.
