Hey guys! Do you know what today is? Gord’s and my anniversary. 6 years! WE MADE IT. That’s approximately 31 times longer than Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries. Lol! We must be doing something right 😉

To celebrate, my husband is leaving to go to his drill….and I made Green Juice. Well, technically I took pictures of my husband and daughter making green juice.

I’m romantic like that.

But, I do have to say that this is my very favorite juice concoction my husband makes. He’s always throwing different fruit and veggies combinations together, but this is the one I crave. I actually craved this all the time when I was pregnant. It’s honestly just a light and mellow drink. Nothing to strong or overpowering. Too much cucumber makes me want to hurl. And too much beet or carrot too. Eew. But this one is *pure perfection* and I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Here’s how you make it:IMG_0258Start with your juicer set up and ready to go. We use the Breville 900-watt Juice Fountain Juicer….no this is not a paid post. We really like our juicer though. It works amazingly well. Some people told us before we got a juicer that it was super annoying to clean. That’s sort of true because there are a lot of parts to wash, but the plastic bag to collect the seeds, skin and pulp makes cleanup 10 times easier! And, if you have a sink of warm soapy water ready and waiting, it really takes 5 minutes or less to get everything washed.

IMG_0260Once your juicer is all set up and ready to go, get all the fruits and veggies prepped. We peel our oranges, grapefruits and cucumbers. We also wash our apples really well with a special produce soap I get at Trader Joes. IMG_0266Once you have all that, we’re ready to make our juice! Brooke loves to help make juice.IMG_0277Start on low speed with the spinach.IMG_0284Next is the cucumber.
IMG_0291Then the citrus.IMG_0301And last are the apples. IMG_0313Stir the finished product all together and pour it into some glasses. I love adding ice to my juice. Cold juice is PRIME. Also, I find that a little lemon brightens the flavors of the juice all together. And, the best part is drinking this!! My kids seriously guzzle this stuff down.IMG_0325I used to crave this juice my husband created while I was pregnant…which may explain why this little dude was sucking it back like crazy.

We love this juice! Give it a whirl today.

    Why peel the cucumber? I just add mine straight in.

    Most seeds have cyanide but the amount of seeds you would have to eat at one time for the cyanide to hurt you is like 147 pounds of just apple seeds…that’s a lot of apples! 🙂

    I wish I had a juicer to try this juice!

    Also, these photos are all so adorable! Brooke and Gordon making the juice together? I die. And Blakes big blue eyes? SWOON! Seriously, your children could not be any cuter. 😉

    I’d also like to know if there’s a way to do this without a juicer. We really don’t need another appliance to store around here, although I’d love to have one! lol

    We make a different green juice with kale and celery. But this this sound yummers. My kids call it goblin juice. Lol

    This looks delicious! In the pictures i noticed the apple going into the juicer with the seeds. Apple seeds contain cyanide and should not be consumed.

    Hi im not sure if you are aware but I saw that you left the apple seeds in your apples in the photo. Apple seeds should be removed because they are toxic. I have gotten this information from experts such as Joe from Reboot with Joe and Drew Canole fitness coach. Both are credited.
    Sorry if you already knew this just wanted to keep you and your family safe.
    Great recipe!

    Hi, I love the recipe but noticed in your photo that the apple had the seeds in it. Keep in mind that apple seeds are toxic and should be removed before you place them in the blender. Might be a good warning to remind your readers about. Keep up the brilliant work. I am a food microbiologist and foodie and love your site.
