The Green Drink

Have you ever heard of the old statement, "When you are green inside, you are clean inside"? I do believe there is some truth to that statement. This is probably one of the healthiest juice recipes available.

The color of this juice is bright green, and it smells like grass that has just been cut, however it doesn't taste like grass. According to my husband is "blend", but that's because he likes really sweet juices.

If what you want to achieve is a very sweet green juice, use more apples. I don't because I don't want my sugar level to spike. Another note... be careful with the Kale, it has a bitter taste so the more you put, the bitter the drink will be. The recipe says two kale leaves, however I only put one. Play with the recipe to your taste.

Handful or parsley or wheatgrass
2 Granny Smith Apples, cut into wedges
2 Kale leaves
Handful of spinach

Juice the parsley or wheatgrass first, then one of the apples, the kale, spinach, and the second apple. That will allow for the juice to flow better in your juicer.
