I have been looking for ways to make more green juice and to replicate the same experience of juicing without actually buying a juicer. I think juicers are amazing, but I really want to avoid buying yet another appliance to sit on my counter. My kitchen mantra is to keep things as basic as possible. I try to have as many multi-functional devices as I can. I own a nice blender, it is not top of the line, but it is middle of the road and it does the trick well for this recipe and many others. What I like about making “juice” in a blender, you always have a choice on using the pulp and keeping the drink more like a smoothie or it can be strained for a clear juice.
