Refreshing Green Juice

Happy Valentines Day, my loves!!!

Let’s play a game.  It’s called Green Juice is the new chocolate.  Here’s how it works, instead of giving you a big ‘ol heart-shaped box of chocolates, I give you a big ‘ol glass of Green Juice.  How about it, are you in?

Last month I mentioned that I got a juicer for Christmas, and I have to say it’s quickly becoming my favorite kitchen gadget.  I’ve been using it and experimenting with different juice combinations quite a bit.  It was a little overwhelming at first, there were just so many different combos to try I didn’t know where to start.  The one thing I still have a hard time wrapping my head around is how much produce it actually takes to make a few servings of juice…it’s a lot more than you might think.

Refreshing Green Juice

For anyone that’s unsure about trying Green Juice, or if you’re new to it, my best advice is to start out slow and steady.  There’s no need to dive into a juice of pure mixed greens and vegetables.  Instead, try a juice that has a mixture of greens and fruit, it will be milder and a little sweet, and it’s not quite so startling.

This Refreshing Green Juice is one of my favorite blends, with flavors that are cool and sweet, with a little hint of zing.

OOH I want to play!! I’m down for green juice over a box of chocolates – I looooooove fresh juice! It’s so green, so full of amazing ingredients! The perfect way to start the morning and not fall into the VDay chocolate trap :)

This was refreshing to see on my bloglovin’ feed through all the Valentine’s sweets! :) Looks great. I love the combo of apple and ginger.

Thanks, Marisa! I was in desperate need of a reprieve from all the sweets, and figured I probably wasn’t alone. Happy Valentines day! xoxo

Oh man, I might be greedy, but do I have to give up the chocolates? Can’t I have both? Because I certaintly love a big ‘ole glass of green juice, but I would love to save my chocolate for dessert. Or better yet, how about you make the green juice, I’ll bring the chocolates and we can share :)

I love the way you think. And, like I always say, everything in moderation. It’s a plan…let’s do it! Happy Valentines Day, Ashley! xoxo

Yes, I think I will definitely need a beginner juice to start off with! Love how vibrant the color of this is…that alone would make me want to drink it.

Well, you’ve come to the right spot, friend! I’d be lying if I said the color alone didn’t make me love this juice :)
