RECIPE: my favorite green juice
Those of you that follow along on Instagram (@vickyheiler) have probably already gotten wind of the new addition to our kitchen – a juicer! I’ve been making juices non-stop since the second we got it and still can’t get enough. Seriously, so yumm! Since a lot of you have commented with questions, regarding the brand of our juicer and my favorite recipes, I thought it was time to share. For the month of August, I’ll be sharing a recipe every week. And today we’re starting with my favorite green juice recipe that is not only super healthy, but also absolutely delicious and refreshing: “The Best Celer-y”.
As you may have already guessed, it involved celery – but also baby spinach, some mint and a bit of fruit! Here’s what you’ll need for about 250ml of green juice:
– 5 stalks of celery (3 is enough if its extra large)
– a handfull of baby spinach
– 1 apple
– 1 orange
– 5 to 8 leaves of fresh mint
Simply place everything in your juicer and serve over lots of ice!
For everyone that asked about our juicer: I bought it used from a friend for 80€ and it is by Philips. The exact name on the box is “Avance Collection Juicer HR1871/10” which costs around 160€ if you buy it new via Amazon. It works amazingly, but most importantly, it is super easy to clean! I know a few people are still hesitant about getting a juicer because they think the cleaning takes forever, this one requires about 2 minutes to clean. So easy! Definitely do it right away tho, that way you just need to hold it under running water because non of the fruit or vegetable leftovers get stuck.
Personally, I am a huge juice lover and think 4€ for a fresh juice are definitely justified just by how much “material” (meaning fruit and veggies) it actually takes for one juice. BUT: Getting a juice is absolutely worth the investment. Not only are you a lot more flexible when and where you have your juice, but you can also experiment around with recipes and it is a perfect way to make use of leftover fruit or veggies in your fridge! Stay tuned for next week’s recipe – it’ll be something orange 🙂
