Community Greens

People of all colors discussing evergreen ideas.

Collard Cool

5 Carrots
4 Stalks Celery
2 Small Apples

I qualify this as a green juice even though the carrots muddy the color. They certainly add to the flavor and nutritional value.

I’m not a stickler about green apples over red apples. They have slightly different health benefits and sugar content but not enough to lose sleep over.

The red apples will generally will make it taste a bit sweeter, so you may want to use green apples to balance the carrots, but that’s your call.

Make a smaller portion by cutting everything in half.

I picked up the tip below from the Little Red House blog connected to their Spring Green Juice:

I love when I have pulp from greens like spinach and kale. I juice these first, and then set the green pulp aside. Saute it up in some olive oil with garlic, pine nuts, sundried tomatoes and throw some pasta and parmesan or goat cheese in…..dinner!
