Cilantro Cucumber Juice

green-juice1

Up until last month I was a juicer virgin.

Yep, that’s right. I’ve never owned a juicer.

Well, not my very own shiny juicer.

Until now.

And boy o’ boy did my life just get a whole lot better.

Last year when I was sick I went to my neighborhood organic juice bar every day.

Sometimes even twice a day.

But now, I’m juicin’ all by myself. And it tastes pretty gosh darn good.

Trust me, this is a good idea.

And this juice recipe will blow your mind (in a good way).

I’ve been making fresh lemonade and herbal iced teas in this Manhattan heat so I thought …Why not go ahead and  make some fresh juice?

It’s insanely refreshing and makes me feel o’ so good inside and out.

I’m just a lil’ worried about one thing.

Think I can turn green from too much juice?

Hehe…

There’s nothing quite like a glass between breakfast and lunch and then again between lunch and dinner.

Heck, I’ve even added a pinch of stevia and made myself a green juice dessert.

Leave it to me to create a green goddess to cure my sweet tooth – this cilantro and cucumber combo is simple and perfectly hits the spot on your tongue that makes you grin from ear to ear.

Especially when the sun is shining, the birds are chirping and summer is right around the corner.

Now I just have to figure out how to pack this juicer in my suitcase for my two week trip to Portland and Seattle next week.

Any suggestions?

Hehehe…

    When I make juicy drinks or smoothies, it’s so sad – I don’t have a juicer or blender, so I use my food processor… sometimes, it works, which is great. But usually, I just have to live with a sort of unprocessed drink. Which is fine, it still tastes good:D

      Thanks so much Michelle; so great to hear from you! Wish I met you at Expo East but hope to meet you soon. If you are short on time, try Barlean’s powdered greens or Amazing Grass powdered greens; they are both delish and all you have to do is add water!

    It’s so beautiful! & I love your ingredients, so I’m sure to love it, but why is a specialized Juicer superior to a mixer-grinder?
