Juicer-less Green Juice (that's not really green because of the beets)

Author Molly Patrick of Clean Food Dirty Girl

Ingredients

  • 1 cup water 235ml
  • 2 apples cored and cut into chunks
  • 1/2 cucumber cut into quarters (take off the peel if it feels waxy)
  • 1 carrot cut into quarters
  • 1 small beet or part of a big beet cut into quarters
  • 1/2 of a lime peeled
  • Big handful of leafy greens
  • 1/4 cup parsley 8g
  • 1/4 cup mint 8g
  • 1 small piece of ginger about half the size of your thumb

Instructions

  1. Place the water into your blender.
  2. Wash and prep all of the ingredients and place them into a bowl (apple, cucumber, carrot, beet, leafy greens, parsley, mint and ginger).
  3. Place the ingredients into your blender, a small handful at a time and blend between handfuls (if you have a powerful blender, like a Vitamix or a Blendtec, you can add all of your ingredients at once). Blend until all of the ingredients are nice and blended. The mixture will be thick.
  4. Pour the mixture through a nut milk bag or paint strainer bag and squeeze all of the juice out of the bag (make sure you place a medium-sized bowl under the bag to catch the juice). Squeeze until the pulp is dry and there is no liquid left.
  5. Transfer the juice to a glass and drink with a straw. You can save the pulp in your freezer for crackers, baking or to thicken soups if you like. Or you can add it to your compost.
  6. This isn't a science - you can play around with different combos and have fun with it!
