Homemade Green Juice

I recently started making my own Green Juices at home. After a few tries, I think I finally have a good mixture and couldn't wait to share on my blog! I don't have a juicer, but use my awesome blender and then strain the mixture through a fine mesh strainer. It takes a little longer, but it's totally worth it because the end result is just so tasty! 

Without saying more, here's a quick look at the juice making process:

The Goods:
2 Handfulls Kale
1 Granny Smith Apple
1 Anjou Pear
2 Kiwi
1 Cutie Tangerine
Juice from 1 Orange
Juice from 1 Lemon
Tiny bit of water and/or ice

Cut up the pear.

Cut up the apple too.

And don't forget the kiwi!

Peel and separate the cutie.

Now add the kale on top of all the fruit.

Squeeze the orange and lemon.
And add a lil bit of water.

Start the blender and watch it go!

Until it looks something like this!

YUM!

You could drink it from this stage, but it's thicker and more smoothie like.

So I strain it through a fine mesh strainer.

Doing it a little at a time.

Pressing down to make sure I collect all the yummy green juices! 

Scrape the pulp out.

This is how much pulp I usually have at the end. 

And THIS is the yummy juice!

All ready to be devoured!

Man...now that I'm done writing this post, I could totally go for a green juice but am feeling too lazy to go make one now. It's easy, but expect to spend about 15 minutes cutting, blending and straining.
