DIY Green Juicing

juicyHave any of your tried green juicing yet? I’m really into juicing right now. It’s a great way to get your greens in on a day when you may not have the time to cook or prepare vegetables for your lunch or dinner. When I’m really in a pinch, I’ll even swing into Whole Foods and grab a juice to go from their barista area.

With this recipe, I really like it because it masks the heady greens flavor for a newbie. In the beginning, greens can be overwhelming so the grapefruit in this recipe masks the strong flavor. Fair warning, If you don’t like the taste of grapefruit though, this isn’t the drink for you. It’s refreshing and definitely takes on the flavor of the grapefruit.

To whip up this delicious drink, gather up the ingredients pictured below and skin the grapefruit and cucumber to get the best juicing primed fruits & veggies!
