Hop on the green juice boat yo!

I know, I know, YOU too?? Yes, I’ve become one of them. A green juice fanatic.

Slicing and crushing things with my blender was fun, but THIS was a whole new level. I repeat, blending does not equal juicing, and the same goes for smoothies and juices. Two completely separate things. 

After I got my juicer, like the amateur that I was, I didn’t know where to start. There were so many recipes online, one could literally search for days. After about an hour I finally gave up, hopped off my chair and just went to the supermarket. I used my instincts and just bought anything, literally anything that was green.

Then finally in the kitchen I asked myself:

What do I do with the seeds? Do I remove them?

Being the silly person that I am I actually did with my apples, then I realized how pointless that was because my juicer literally obliterated everything. Quite fun to watch.
Do I have to wash everything? 
This may be common sense but yes you should. Trust me, you do not want dirt from your organic spinach floating around and I imagine it is not so good for the blades in your juicer.

How long will the juice stay fresh in my fridge?
From what I heard, juice if kept in a sealed container will remain fresh for up to 3 days, but I usually down all mine within two. 
Is it hard to wash a juicer? 
Not hard, just annoying. I do appreciate that mine came with a cute little brush for scrubbing down.

Should I get a really expensive juicer? 
No, I do NOT recommend throwing hundreds on a juicer if it’s your first time. How will you know if you’ll even use it more than once? Mine is from Amazon for around 60 bucks. Here is the link.

After trying a couple of recipes, this was my favorite.

(Makes 2 servings)
1 whole apple
1/2 of a large cucumber
4 large stalks of Celery
A handful of spinach

The result?

Hulk juice.
