Make Simple Green Juice in your blender following just 3 easy steps! It’s a no-fuss, budget-friendly recipe anyone can make at home.
I’m a sucker for a good green juice. If I feel a cold coming on, have neglected my vegetable consumption for a few days or drank my weight in another form of “juice,” green juice starts calling my name.
This means great things for my health, but terrible things for my wallet.
If you’ve ever hit up a juice bar or your favorite healthy restaurant then you know how much even the most basic green juice costs. At one point I toyed with the idea of buying a juicer, but then I realized I a) have zero space for it and b) it isn’t the most budget-friendly appliance considering it serves only one function, to juice.
So I started to dig deeper into the idea that I might be able to make delicious juices in one of the 15 too many appliances I already own.
If you can make a smoothie in a blender, than why not green juice?
The question was how to turn that smoothie into your basic juices.
Before we move on, I should explain the difference between a smoothie and a juice. While both are fantastic for your health, juice has the fiber (or “pulp”) from the vegetables and fruit removed so what you’re getting is the vitamin and mineral packed juice.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with fruit and vegetable pulp. Fiber is great for the body and we all need it in our diet, but sometimes it can get in the way of our body absorbing all of those vitamins and minerals. When you drink juice (versus a smoothie), your body can absorb 100% of the good stuff, without the insoluble fiber getting in the way.
Plus, you can keep the veggie and fruit pulp and throw it into other kitchen creations, from soup to baked goods to extra goodness in smoothies.
The best part is that juicing in your blender can be done in just 3 easy steps! That’s one step more than juicing in a juicer, but the amount of money and counterspace you’ll save makes it so worth it. Also, juicers can be a pain in the butt to clean, but if you have the Designer 725 Blender from Blendtec, it has a genius self-clean option which makes cleaning completely no-fuss!
