National Green Juice Day
Green juice is a beverage that people drink when they’re trying to adopt a healthier lifestyle. This beverage is made from the juices of green vegetables and may include spinach, wheatgrass, celery, kale, or any other combination of green veggies. It’s usually a drink that people start consuming right after New Year’s as part of their New Year’s resolution. Therefore, it shouldn’t be surprising that the holiday encouraging people to drink this healthful beverage is celebrated on January 26th, commonly known as National Green Juice Day.
The History of National Green Juice Day
National Green Juice Day began in 2016 when Evolution Fresh, an organic beverage company, initiated this holiday to promote their line of drinks. It has since become popular across the U.S., with people from coast to coast making their own green juices or purchasing one of the commercially available options, such as Evolution Fresh’s Organic Green Devotion.
A Basic Green Juice Recipe
It can be challenging to find a green juice recipe that is not only easy to make but also tastes good. Therefore, we decided to experiment a bit in our Holiday Calendar kitchen to see if we could develop a recipe that met both criteria. After some research and a lot of hard work, we’ve created a basic green juice recipe that we think everyone will appreciate.
- Approximately 40 grams of fresh spinach.
- One stalk of fresh celery (leaves included).
- Two pears.
- A 1-centimeter piece of ginger root.
- A quarter bulb of fennel.
- A squeeze of lemon.
- Ensure all ingredients are washed and chopped into pieces.
- Process the ingredients through your favorite juicer.
- If the juicer isn’t equipped with a strainer, you might want to strain the juice for a smoother texture.
- Enjoy at your leisure or keep it sealed in a container for up to 48 hours.
- For longer storage, freeze it. It will then last up to a week.
