When Christian and I were on our honeymoon, we would have this delicious green juice every morning with our breakfasts. Packed with vitamins and greens but tasty with punches of pineapple, orange and lime, we were seriously into this drink. I may have even gotten some to go and mixed it with tequila by the pool. It’s a vacation, right?
We’ve been adamant about recreating this delicious juice ourselves (minus the tequila), especially after asking one of the sweet waiters what all was in it! We’re slowly but surely getting there and I have to share the best version yet.
Y’all know I’m into using my Vitamix to juice – especially if you’ve read my DIY BluePrintCleanse post. I blend everything in my Vitamix and then use a nut milk bag to strain the juice, removing some (but not all) of the pulp.
- 2 cups packed spinach
- 1 cucumber
- 3 carrots
- 1 orange
- 1/3 or 1/4 a pineapple (depending on how much sweetness you like)
- 2 apples
- large handful of mint
- juice from half a lime
- juice from half a lemon
Combine all ingredients in a blender or juicer. Blend until smooth and strain. Store in an air tight container and drink within 3 days.
Are you into green juice? If you’re hesitant about the green juice and smoothie trend, try this drink. The flavor and sweetness will surprise you!
