Every morning this summer, I’ve started the day off with making a big jar of Green Monster juice for Ryan and I. Despite its strong resemblance to algae, it’s delicious and surprisingly filling!
I shopped around for a juicer for a few weeks before decided on a Hamilton Beach Extractor. I went with it because it was relatively inexpensive, and I could stick most of the parts into the dishwasher. Doing dishes and taking out the trash are my least favorite chores. I firmly believe that taking out the trash is The Man’s Job, and dishes I just don’t care for. Anywho, the juicer is just dandy. Ryan tried doing it once and felt like it was “too aggressive”, but I think that may be what I like about it. It’s a bit on the loud side, and there’s something a bit gratifying about shoving whole chunks of things into it and liquifying them. It gets out all of my early in the day agression.
The Ingredients ::
- half a lemon, peeled
- chunk of ginger (i use about an inch)
- one cucumber
- two green apples
- four stalks celery
- six kale leaves
I’ve switched up the recipe just a bit in the past few months! Since kale hasn’t been in season, I’ve replaced it with two to three cups of spinach, added a pear, and then throw the whole mix into a blender with a whole avocado! DELICIOUS.
