Cilantro Cucumber Juice

by Amie on June 1, 2012

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…

I so want to run out and buy a juicer now. I’ve heard that they are amazing. Do you have one you would recommend?

Cilantro, ginger, watercress…yum!! Alright, I may have to make an impulse purchase this afternoon. Juice Generation’s sales may drop drastically, if I make my own ;)

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 Emma; hope you can find a fun smoothie or juice bar to enjoy soon! Have a great weekend.

This looks refreshing! Juicing is so appealing to me – especially as a morning pick me up. I’m so busy these days that its nice to see a wide variety of ways to get my nutrients in quickly.

I love juicing! Unfortunately, I don’t have much time in the morning before work, but when I’m home it’s so yummy. Sounds like a great recipe.

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!
