After a relaxing weekend with a few glasses of wine and another summer weekend almost here again, I try to add a little extra healthiness to my day. My husband and I are always working hard at staying in shape and eating healthy without spending too much time on the prep work and details. In the past year we have experimented more with green juices and jumped over the hurdle of their appearance (I know the face many of your are making when you think about a green juice, trust me, I made it too). I think we have finally found one we truly enjoy and that really tastes good. This juice may not be for everyone, but let me tell you three of my feelings about green juices anyway as to why I drink this juice as often as possible-or really as often as Dave will make it for me.
- It truly tastes good and not like a liquid salad-the more fruit you mix in too, the better it masks the greens flavor
- You will feel full and refreshed at the same time-I drink it for breakfast some days or as a post work out snack
- You will continue to feel fresh and vibrant for hours and days to come. All of these ingredients pack a lot of great essential vitamins and nutrients to make your body glow and keep wanting more

Mix all ingredients in a blender, add to your favorite glass, and give it a try!
