The "Green Juice" Excellent and talk about Healthy!

Cheryl's Corner Photo "Green Juice"

Green Juice you say, yup it is just that. Your probably saying Yuck!
 but no, this juice is very popular in the Mexican town of Puerto Vallarta. 
The last time i went there i got fortunate enough to get the ingredients, yeah!
 its not  a really easy one to guess, but I'm sure your dying to know whats in this,
 so here's my home made version of the "Green Juice".

(Green Juice) Casa Velas Hotel Puerto Vallarta
(You Need A Juicer For this Recipe)
Casa Velas Boutique Hotel is my most favorite place to be in the whole world. 
 My favorite morning drink while I’m there is the Green Juice, 
  I drink 2 of these each morning with a small breakfast,
 it doesn’t sound that good but it is, and it’s good for you.

2 to 3 celery ribs

2 - 3 cups fresh spinach

1/4 cup fresh parsley
 2 ounces of fresh pineapple juice and 2 ounces of fresh-squeeze orange juice

2 ounces of filtered water

Green Juice:  celery, spinach and parsley. The above amounts should yield about 4 ounces of juice.
 If more is needed,  juice more celery or spinach. Be careful about adding more parsley
. It is potent and too much can take over your juice, making it just a little too strong.  

Once that you have 4 ounces of green juice, add 4 ounces Orange-Pineapple juice
 or an equivalent amount of fresh orange-pineapple juice.
 Add 2 ounces of water to thin it out.
Stir up your mixture, and have at it.

Makes 10 ounces or about enough for 1 person.
 Double this recipe  to make it for 2 people.
Did i mention that a juicer makes this recipe easy otherwise forget about it, I haven't tried it

in the Magic Bullet Blender i think that would turn it more into soup.
