Being organised and maintaning a healthier lifestyle have been on my mind towards the end of last year and I felt that I’ve made fairly good progress. Needless to say, I hope to continue the good work in 2013. 😉 Whilst juicing was not part of the equation last year, I was tempted to hop on the green juice bandwagon.

I decided not owning a juicer shouldn’t be the reason to keep me away from green juice. So I improvised. I was happy to stick to the makeshift method (using a sieve and a cheesecloth) until I am serious about incorporating juicing into my lifestyle. In terms of the ingredients, I added coconut water in an effort to make green juice tastes better. :p

Green Juice without a Juicer

What you’ll need to make 2 cups:-

  • 1 cup, tighly packed, baby spinach
  • 2 stalk of celery, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cucumber, diced
  • Juice from 1/2 lime
  • 350ml (12 fl ounces) coconut water (choose a brand that is organic and no artificial flavour)

Other: Stick blender, jug, cheese cloth and a sieve

In a tall tumbler, pack the spinach and celery, then add the lime juice and coconut water. Then blend over the low speed (be careful to avoid splashing) until the vegetables turn into really fine particles. Set up the “juicer” station by placing a sieve over a jug and a cheese cloth over the sieve. Slowly pour the mixture into the cheese cloth for the juice to go through the sieve (the process didn’t take long). Transfer the green juice into your favourite glass and enjoy! 🙂

    What a lovely idea for a giveaway. The planner looks beautiful, especially being able to personalise it. Am loving your colourful juice posts. I am thinking orange might be a great colour to do.
