Notes

I made my juices in a high-speed blender like a Vitamix or Nutribullet and then use a nut milk bag to strain the mixture.  I've had juicers, they are large and messy, hard to clean.  I prefer the simple extra step of using a nut milk bag or cheesecloth, and this is actually my favorite method.  //  It is always best to use organic in juices.  So if the cucumber is organic then use the skin, if it's not organic peel it. //
