Green Juice (Without a Juicer!)

Green Juice (Without a Juicer!) | Style & Spice

Over the past few years there have been some major improvements in the store-bought juices available on the market. While I’m very happy that they’re available for the convenience factor, there’s just something about a fresh juice that tastes so much better.ย I love going to my local juice bar and getting a fresh juice that was made right before my eyes.

I have yet to make the leap of investing in a juicer. I know that I would use it lots, but I’m a little intimidated by horror stories of keeping them clean. Instead of using a juicer, I used a blender and then strained out the pulp using a nut milk bag. A nut milk bag is just a reusable mesh bag that can be used for making almond milkย orย juice. I even used one to make my favorite sangria recipe! If you don’t want to buy a nut milk bag, you can also use cheesecloth. However, I’ve found that the nut milk bag is more durable and is easier to use.

Green Juice (Without a Juicer!)

Yield: 2 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 kale leaves, stems removed
  • 1 cup pineapple
  • 1 lemon
  • 1/2 cucumber
  • 1 inch piece of ginger
  • filtered water

Instructions

  1. In your blender, add the kale and about 1/2 cup of water. Blend on high until smooth.
  2. Remove the rind from the lemon and discard or save it for another recipe.
  3. Chop the cucumber, lemon, pineapple and ginger into medium sized pieces.
  4. Blend until smooth. Depending on the quality of your blender, you may need to stream in extra water to make sure all of the ingredients are blended together.
  5. Place your nut milk bag over a large bowl with a spout. Pour your juice over the bowl and squeeze the bag to separate all of the juice from the pulp.
  6. Pour over ice and enjoy immediately.

Notes
