Rated 4 out of 5 by smoothies4alex from great with lemon I didn't have celery on hand, but used the other ingredients listed. After tasting, my fiancé and I agreed that a lemon juice would add some much needed tartness. Just a quick squeeze was enough to take this drink to another level.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SnUZuluz from Delicious I made this today exactly as written and the flavor was perfect..I don't have a juicer so I used my blender then sieved through mesh strainer. I ended up with about a cup of liquid. The mesh strainer didn't do a whole lot as far as getting excess liquid even though I pushed down with rubber spatula. I went to fabric store and bought .5 yards of Swiss voile for $3 which I will use to make my own bag (similar to a nut milk bag according to online research)

Rated 5 out of 5 by SamanthaBee from Loved this! I subbed spinach for kale as I didn’t have any on hand & I didn’t strain as I found it liquified enough and I like retaining the benefit of the fibre in the foods. Great recipe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rosalie from Delicious detox This is a wonderful, simple recipe. I generally switch out the kale for a baby greens mix, and de-seed the cucumber prior to adding it. I also don't strain it so it ends up more of a smoothie consistency, but I'm in love with this recipe! Other variations: swapping a banana for the second apple, and kiwi instead of celery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jaybo from Yummmmm!!! I am so happy I took the plunge and purchased a Vitamix For the last week I have been making all kinds of delicious health dips, soups and smoothies. This Green recipe I just had and It was great! I only sifted it because my milk bag has not arrived yet. I am ok though because all it means is I consumed more fiber which is what I need for healthy digestion. I am a happy camper.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sunny8a from Tasty after a little tweaking I made this juice following the instructions and discovered it needed more sweetness to offset the strong flavors of the greens. I decided to add one cup red grapes and one cup green grapes and Voilà! Perfectly delicious!
