Green Apple Veggie Juice [Dairy Free & Gluten Free]

 

 

Doesn’t look like much here but some green juice right? Wrong! Well not totally wrong, it is green. ;)

In this glass contains 5 different green fruit and veggies that make this green juice some powerful stuff! Filled with vitamins and nutrients and tastes like a green apple, you’d never know it has good for you veggies in it.

Drink this in the morning and you will be setting yourself up for a fabulous day of energy and a clean feeling inside, like you’re cleaning out all the junk and starting fresh with this glass of goodness. Your body will thank you. :)

 

 

Whether you’re “into” green smoothies or not, this is super healthy and should be given at least a chance in your life for the mere fact that you can say you tried it! I bet though you actually WILL like it and you will be quite surprised at how good it really is!

I can’t really call it a smoothie as there is no dairy like yogurt or milk to make it creamy, so hence the juice name. BUT I can guarantee you this tastes MUCH better than V-8 vegetable juice from a can!

    you dont find the celery overpowering? My mom has a juicer and I find that you truly cant taste spinach, and lemon and cucumber are so refreshing but ever a TINY bit of celery overwhelmed every previous combo (even juices with a lot of fruit)

    Hi! First-timer on your site & I am loving it! Question regarding your smoothies: Is it OK to add in whey protein, the unflavored kind? not wanting to take away from any of the nutritional value of the veggies. thanks!

    Even though I like them, Grapes, cucumbers and sometimes green apples cause me serious stomach pains when I eat them in their natural state. In a smoothie are they less offensive? I know I would like it but don’t want to suffer.

      Well I can’t say you won’t still have issues or not but a smoothie changes their state and makes it more digestible so it may not effect you as eating them whole.
