2014 is the year of the green drink. Everywhere you turn folks are buying, selling, making and drinking something green. From chlorella (aka algae) based powder to heirloom kale and collard greens, it would seem that “super-foods” are more popular than ever and that green is most definitely still the new black. What is it about the green drink that’s got folks going crazy? Is it the allure of drinking something seemingly unbearable and surprisingly palatable in the name of health? Maybe in this fast-pace world it’s an easy way to get one’s daily allowance? Or maybe it’s just plain trend! Whatever the cause, we don’t mind a bit! Like we always say, the greener, the better!
If you feel lost in a sea of green, fear not! Getting going on a green regimen is simpler than you might think. You don’t need tons of cash and you don’t even need to splurge on a juicer. Your plain old blender (with the help of a sharp knife) should do just fine. All you need is a variety of leafy greens such as kale or collards, fresh herbs like parsley and mint and some crunchy seasonal veggies like cucumber and celery. (Um, YUM!) Throw in some liquid of your choice such as water, grapefruit juice or even pineapple juice, fruit to taste and blend away. A fresh squeeze of lemon should help to balance the flavors and mellow any sweetness as well.
