My aunt Peg used to call her morning cup of coffee her “go-go juice”. No getting near this mother of 4 boys unless she’d first gotten her morning fix. Well Peg, I bet my go-go juice gets you further, longer, with less downside. The green juice “rush” is absolutely addictive.
I make a batch in the evening, store in the fridge in two large mason jars (available at Target, New Leaf, Whole Foods, Amazon, …), and in the morning- shake and serve. If headed to work, I put the mason jars in a cooler bag with a few ice packs, and bring along my empty silver coffee mug.
One batch = 1 meal, usually breakfast or lunch, sipped until the next mealtime.
- 3 cups water
- large bunch greens (spinach, kale, arugula, romaine…)
- 1/2 large cucumber, peeled (or 3 stalks celery)
- handful parsley
- 1-2 lemons, peeled
- 2″ slice ginger root, peeled
- 1 apple, peel on
- 1 banana
Blend all in a Vitamix (or other high-power blender) until smooth. Store in mason jars in fridge up to 3 days.
Let me know if you come up with any favorite variations!!
