Ever wanted to make juice at home, but not sure you’re ready to invest in a juicer? This recipe is for you. All you need is a blender, a strainer, some cheesecloth and a love of fresh, nutritious juice. — Jimmy Rosenberg, founder, Evolution Fresh

Ingredients

  • 1/2  peeled cucumber
  • 1/2  cored pear
  • 1  Cup  romaine
  • 1/2  Cup  kale
  • ice cubes
  • 1  Tablespoon  lemon juice

Directions

Line a strainer with two layers of cheesecloth, leaving plenty of cloth around the edges. Place the strainer over a mixing bowl or a measuring cup.

Blend all ingredients on high for 90 seconds, adding additional coconut water (or filtered water) if the blend is not liquefying.

As soon as your slurry is the consistency of a thick tomato soup, pour into cheesecloth-lined strainer and let the liquid filter through.

When the juice slows to a trickle, gather the edges of the cheesecloth and squeeze so the remaining juice is pushed through the cheesecloth. Repeat if necessary.
