I wanted to share a green juice recipe I always love to try and enjoy often this time of year. It’s brimming with all sorts of goodies–enzymes, chlorophyll (a powerful detoxifier), vitamins, and trace minerals. As with all green juices, it’s best enjoyed first thing in the morning for maximum benefit.
