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…

Hi, I'm Amie!

I’m here to share my story of healing with you. I know what it’s like to suffer and not know what’s going on with your body. I’ve been there. I was lost, searching for answers and alone for 10 years until I learned how to get my body working for me, not against me—to address the underlying symptoms instead of using a Band-aid approach to reclaim my vitality. I want to show you that eating and living clean feels incredible. Once you see life this way, you’ll never go back. Ever. Come play along with me on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter. I’m here for you. xo

    1. Yes! I LOVE my new Juice Master made by Carico! Seriously it is so painless and easy to use. I was worried it would be a headache to use and clean but it is amazing!!

  1. 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 😉

    1. Thanks Hanna; it’s amazing! I’ll have to make it for you when we get together in a few weeks. Have a fabulous weekend; thanks for a great walk in Central Park this week! xo

  2. AMIE,

    WILL GIVE THIS JUICE A TRY IT LOOKS DELICIOUS, I HAVE JUICED BEFORE BUT NEVER ALL GREEN. THANK YOU ONCE AGAIN FOR YOUR GREAT IDEAS I LOOK FORWARD TO THE DIFFERENT RECEIPES.

  3. 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

    1. Awe; thank you Kati! You are so kind. Great to hear from you darling and so excited for our conference soon! Have a great day!

    1. Thanks Frank! I just got this Juice Master made by Carico and it’s awesome. Seriously so easy to clean and use. My clients are obsessed too! I worked with Alyssa- here is her email if you’d like to reach out to hear to buy one: alisaalt28@gmail.com
      Have a great night, Frank.

  4. Oh, your green juice looks so good I had to make my own! I love juicing in the comfort of my own home, its a luxury! What kind of camera do you use to take these pictures–they are perfect!!

  5. 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.

    1. 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!
      xo

  6. 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?
