Sweet Greens Juice

After admiring juicers for the past year, I had a special delivery at my door from my parents the other day. I'm so excited to create and try new juice recipes, so please post your favorite recipes! I grew up drinking homemade juices and I've always loved the taste of celery and cucumber, so of course I had to include them in my first juice! I think this recipe is a good start for a beginner's "green" juice. Enjoy!

Sweet Greens (Makes 20oz)
- 1/2 English Cucumber
- 3 Stalks of Celery, Chopped into 1 inch pieces
- 2 Med or 3 Small Apples, Sliced into wedges
- 2 Handfuls of Spinach
- 1 Pear, Sliced into wedges

  1. Make sure you follow the feeding instructions for your specific juicer.
  2. In order to reduce pulp backup, I alternate the celery and spinach with the fruit and cucumber.
I know I've only used it once so far, but I really enjoy my Omega VRT350 HD. While the masticating juicers are a little slower, I didn't find it to be too tedious. I've also read some complaints about additional cleaning time, but it only took me a few minutes. Aside from the great juice and dry pulp, I absolutely love that the juicer is upright and small enough to store on my counter. Keep an eye out for Bed Bath and Beyond's 20% coupons, these juicers can get expensive and I saved $75.00 on my purchase! Happy juicing friends!

- Masticating vs. Centrifugal
