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!

Thanks so much for reading! XO –

    1. I think you’ll really enjoy the nut milk bag – I use mine all the time! I would say this recipe comfortably makes about four servings. Let me know what you think!! XO –

    2. Kathleen – I LOVED the juice! I have even shared the recipe with some of my friends who also love it! And yes, the nut milk bag worked perfectly, but I got a little excited when pouring the juice into it 🙂 Thanks again for the great recipe!

  2. After something like a week of drinking the green drink I started to feel a radical change in my physique. Yet I had a feeling that I was getting a bit down from the stuff. Later I discovered that its an indication of detoxification. The detox got so terrible that I was pretty wiped out for something like 3 days.
