My favorite way to eat spinach everyday. Popeye would be so proud…

I used to be a 2 cups of creamer-and-sugar-laden coffee per morning kind of girl. After becoming veegetarian decided to kick my caffeine habit, which did wonders for my energy levels, but I missed having something tasty to sip throughout the morning.

This Vegetable Delight Juice is my new morning sipper. It is sweet apple with a hint of bitter spinach, an explosion of ginger, and the smooth creaminess of carrot.

Tip: Fresh squeezed juice should always be enjoyed right away. If you are a sipper, like me, then drink out of a dark bottle or canteen and keep the lid tightly closed between sips to reduce the oxidation of essential nutrients. Adding a touch of lemon juice will also slow oxidation.

    I don’t have a juicer, can’t afford it. However, I have an high power (800 watt) blender that does great breakdown but not juice quality. If I cut up and soften all veg and cook as soup then run thru the blender using all liquid would that be as healthy?

      Hi Mel,
      Thanks for commenting! I wouldn’t recommend cooking your veggies before juicing them. Not only will this reduce the nutrients, it would also effect the flavor. In your situation I would recommend blending everything (raw) in your blender and then using an almond milk strainer or cheesecloth to strain out the pulp. Hope that helps!
