She {hearts} Green Water

DSC_0400No correlation with “green beer,” only a coincidence. ;) Seriously, I did not put two and two together until I sat down to write this post. It must be in my subconscious mind. Well, Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

I have been making green water for about a year now. I have a juicer and use it ever so often, but I find it really hard to juice leafy-green produce. You have to roll it up really well and still it gets stuck and sometimes the machine doesn’t do its best juicing job if it’s juicing leafy-green veggies. If you have a really awesome juicer you might not have this problem, but let’s say you are able to juice leafy-green veggies with ease. Man, that would be some potent green juice. Might be like drinking a Guinness (wink). Maybe on occasion, YUM!  But not everyday! :)

You can use any leafy-green veggies. I switch it up between parsley, kale and, spinach.

It’s a very refreshing “healthy” drink. Don’t expect it to taste yum, but it’s not bad. Even my hubby agrees. He isn’t really one to get on-board when I use my juicer, but he’s  been known to ask me to make him a green water. “Why?” you may ask; because it makes you feel awesome! I have a ton more energy when I’m drinking green water.

Directions:

Wash your produce, unless it’s already been “triple washed”–don’t ya love when the organic spinach says that? Add your green veggies and the amount of water needed to match your servings to your blender. Blend until liquified. Strain it well. The pulp can be used to make your homemade pesto. No waste! I will often freeze the pulp until I am ready to make the pesto. Pour into glasses and be sure to add  lots of lemon and I mean a lot! Sometimes I add ice when I’m blending it so it’s extra cold. Enjoy!

This weekend could be a GREAT time for you to introduce your family  to “green water!” Tell ‘em if they don’t drink it, they’ll get pinched! ;)
