green juice {in a blender}


Currently, this green juice is one of my favorite things. Don't let the color scare you, the taste makes up for the color (kinda?). You would never know this juice was packed with kale because it tastes like freshly squeezed green apple juice, lemon and a hint of cucumber. I got curious about green juice after hearing so much about juice cleanses. I've never attempted a juice cleanse but for how much I enjoy this green juice, I can't say I'd hate it. I love drinking all of those fruit/veggie juices they sell in grocery stores, like Naked juices, because they make me feel like I'm getting a decent serving of veggies (and yes, lots of sugar). And because I'm always looking for ways to eat more veggies, I decided to give homemade juice a try.

So this is where I tell you, I don't have a juicer. Obviously, I would love a juicer one day but they are so expensive! After a little research, I decided to try making green juice in my Vitamix and it worked surprisingly well. By using a blender, I have to take an extra step and strain the mixture to get the juice but I tell myself that a blender is much easier to clean than a juicer so it's a fair trade off.

Just a few notes:

If you want to drink the juice immediately than use cold fruits and veggies, your juice will taste so much better!

Also, this juice can be refrigerated for up to 24 hours, making it a perfect grab and go breakfast.

And you will have about a cup of pulp leftover which I save and add to my smoothies during the week.

Now go make and love green juice, you can't use the 'I don't have a juicer' excuse anymore.

Green Juice {in a blender}
makes 1 serving

6 kale leaves, stems removed and leaves coarsely chopped
1 green apple, diced
1 cucumber, diced
2 stalks of celery, diced
1/2 lemon, peeled

Add cucumber, celery, kale, apples and lemon to the blender (in that order) and blend until very smooth (takes about 2 minutes on high with Vitamix). You will need to use a tamper or spoon to get it moving at first.

Strain mixture with a strainer or a cheese cloth. If you don't want any pulp in your juice, strain mixture through twice.

  40. Riddle Transfer 2 is a puzzle game which is the second edition of the series. You need to play the previous version in order to understand the storyline of the game however you can still play it and have fun without the playing previous version. This time you will run away from the Zone 5.1 but soldiers of Zed will find you while you are at school. This means that you will use your practical intelligence to run away from the school and chase the aliens who forced you to take a test to kick them away from our earth.

  41. Riddle School 3 is one of the best puzzle games with totally a different concept. Unlike most of the puzzle games, you will be controlling a student who is trying to get out of the school in order to keep fighting against aliens to protect the world. You will have to collect materials from the rooms you are going to visit and use these materials to find your way to exit. This time you will start in a geography class and find your way to hall first and then out of the school which is going to be challenging.
