The first "green juice" I've ever made!

There is a beyond beyond amazing juice/smoothie/soup bar in Portland called, The Maine Squeeze (they have two locations now: Moulton Street in the Old Port and second floor of Public Market House in Monument Square) It is one of my favorite places in the entire world; at $5-$7 a smoothie, it can tend to be very pricey. SO I decided that I would venture into the world of homemade green juices and smoothies. Can't hurt, right?

The recipe below is based off of Dr. Oz's Green Drink, but I added a few of my own ingredients that I had laying about the fridge. I'm going to be honest, I love the earthy flavor of this- but if you are looking for something sweeter feel free to add a banana, a touch of honey or agave nectar.

- 2 apples chopped up with skin on. 
- 1 handful spinach. 
- 1 handful kale. 
- 1/2 beets (reason for dark color, otherwise it would be a lovely shade of green)
- 2 ribs chopped celery. 
- 1/2 teaspoon peeled ginger root. 
- 1 bunch parsley. 
- juice of one lime. 
- juice of 1/2 lemon. 

Throw all that jank up in yo' blender and go on witcha bad self until it's smooth. 
Enjoy my loves.

XO
Maggie
