Blended Spinach Green Juice

Today I did a little something different with my green juice – I used my Vita Mix AND my Juicer to create an extra nutritious {and delicious} green drink.

First thing’s first – I made my green juice {and added carrots} in my juicer as per usual.

It looked a little something like this:

I then busted out my vita mix and added 1/2 a bag of spinach.

It pretty much took up the entire blender. That’s a lot of spinach!

I added in a few ice cubes to give the juice a nice little chill.

And I topped off the spinach with a little splash of the previously juiced green juice.

Blend away to break down all the spinach.

Once the spinach is all juiced up, I added in the rest of the green juice to really blend it all together.

I love how the green juice – without the spinach and with some carrots is so orange – even though it is jam packed full of great greens {celery, cucumber, lime, parsley!} The blended spinach gives it such a great color.

This juice gives my green juice a whole new kick – I personally think it tastes even better with the spinach blended instead of juiced. It keeps all the green goodness right there in the juice! What’s not to love about that?!

It was fun to change up my juicing routine and I know having the nutritional benefits of all that spinach – comparable to a green monster – is a great way to start my day!
