SPINACH CARROT JUICE RECIPE
This healthy spinach carrot juice recipe will not only give you a TON of natural energy, but has a hefty dose of fiber! The pineapple is a nice sweetener and flavor, make sure to keep the nutritious core in it, as your Blendtec or Vitamix high powered blender will easily pulverize it and make it digestible for you. You can substitute apple for the pineapple if necessary, but make sure to core it first, since apple seeds aren’t nutritious like the core of the pineapple! You can use regular water or we like coconut water for added hydration, electrolytes, and potassium. Because carrots juice is so fibrous compared to other juices we make and to make it more of a thin juice consistency, you will notice in the recipe instructions for Blendtec we use the SOUP button, which runs a full 40 seconds longer than the WHOLE JUICE button, and for Vitamix, we run it a full 1.5 minutes on High before manually stopping. However be sure to add lots of ice so it doesn’t get hot and kill the live enzymes.
