It’s no secret… I love me some green juice!
I find a little cup of green juice to be the perfect side with my breakfast in the morning and helps to get me energized for the day. This juice is packed with vitamins and minerals along with a healthy dose of antioxidants to protect our cells and nurture our bodies.
How does this recipe fit into a healthy diet? This juice is not a meal in and of itself but I love to pair it with a protein packed breakfast or snack.
Who might benefit from this recipe? Anyone who is trying to up the nutrient profile of their diet! I even give it to my 1 year old son in his sippy cup!
*Note: This juice is best consumed immediately. For maximum nutritional benefit, consume within an hour of making.
