In a juicer begin with the leafy vegetables. Then feed in the ginger root and apple (sliced up). Finally, feed in the pineapple and finish with the carrots.
This order seems to work best for our juicer as it allows the leaves to move through the system without getting backed up by the other softer fruits. Carrots are great for cleaning out a juicer because of their consistency.
I’m not sure what else to call this juice. It’s perfectly green but so sweet and delicious. Our family makes this all of the time and although the ingredients vary from time to time, it still maintains its green color.
The ginger in the juice is great for kicking a cold and the leafy greens are incredibly good for you. To learn more about how the fruits and veggies interact with your system check out our Green Machine Breakfast Smoothie post.
The difference between a juice and a smoothie is that smoothies use the entire piece of fruit or raw vegetable, grinding and blending it into a drinkable form. Juicing takes that same raw piece of fruit or vegetable and presses and grinds out only the juice, nutrients and vitamins so that you are left with only liquid.
