Green Juice with Cucumber and Pear


This green juice is perfect to start with if you've never tried green juice. Though there are vegetables in this juice, the pear and mint make it a little on the sweeter side and balance the kale and celery. (You'll hardly be able to taste the kale, if at all).

(serves 2)

2 pears, cored and halved
3 celery stalks, bottom end removed
1 cucumber, peeled

1/2 bunch kale (we used green)
1 handful mint

Blender/Food Processor Directions: Cut the pears, cucumber and celery into small chunks and add them to the blender or food processor. Process with some water until smooth. Roughly chop the kale and add to the food processor. Mix until combined. Add a handful of mint and blend. Taste and add more mint leaves if desired. Pour into a glass and enjoy!

Juicer Directions: Feed the kale, celery stalks, cucumber and pear halves down the chute one at a time until processed. Add a handful of mint. Pour into a glass and enjoy!
