Joy for Juice
I first made cold pressed juices a few summers ago as a go to drink after kayaking on the lake all morning. After trying the grocery store version of many healthy “green juices” that tasted like barf, I decided to try my own. This Summer Green Juice is both nutritious and slightly sweet and tastes nothing like the pre-packaged overly expensive bottles at the grocery store. It incorporates apples, crisp cucumbers, fresh celery, and kale together into a vibrant green juice.
If you want to join the “juice life” and consistantly make juice you will want to invest in a quality juicer. They come in a range of prices, and you will truly get what you pay for. However, a less expensive model on a frequent basis may result in buying 2-3 juicers. It is more sustainable to save up and purchase the correct model for your juicing needs.
Storing your Summer Green Juice
The best way to store your Green Juice is to use an airtight container. Initially, I tried mason jars. They were cheap and looked Pinterest pic worthy, however the lids rusted within two months. Then this led me to find a large airtight pitcher. I have been using the one here for 3 years and it works great.
If you enjoyed this juice I highly suggest you check out my Spring Carrot Ginger Juice.
