Juicer-less Green Juice

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

  • Place the water into your blender.
  • Wash and prep all of the ingredients and place them into a bowl (apple, cucumber, carrot, beet, leafy greens, parsley, mint and ginger).
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • This isn't a science - you can play around with different combos and have fun with it!
