Equipment

  • high-speed blender

  • 1 ½ cups dandelion stems and leaves
  • 2 large romaine leaves
  • 12 small-medium sized romaine leaves
  • 1 cup pitted dark cherries
  • cup pineapple
  • ¼ cup nectarine ripe
  • 1 ½ cup spring water
  • 1 cup ice

Instructions

  • Blast all ingredients together except ice in a high-speed blender until well blended
  • Using a Nutbag over a bowl with ice in it, pour the mixture into the bag and strain the juice from the bag into the bowl. Discard the pulp.
  • Pour over ice into a large glass and enjoy with a straw immediately

Notes

  • It is best to drink your juice immediately because the veggies start to decompose.  If you can't drink it immediately try and drink it as soon as you can rather than waiting hours. 
  • It is best to make your drink the day you plan to drink it.  I do not suggest making a juice the night before because the veggies will decompose
  • Strive for organic whenever possible.
  • You can buy a cheap nutbag on Amazon.  I have the cotton mesh one.  I never leave home without it.
