Shauna Martin's Daily Morning Greens Juice from Daily Greens: 4-Day Cleanse + A Giveaway!

"Unlike the other drinks featured in this chapter, this is a recipe for a green juice, as opposed to a smoothie. So you'll be using your juicer here -- not your high-speed blender. When I first began drinking green juices, I had to incorporate a substantial amount of apple to this one to make it appeal to my taste buds. But day after day, I noticed my palate being cleansed of my cravings for sugar, and the apple started to taste sickeningly sweet, so I removed the apple bit by bit until it was all greens. After several months of drinking this every morning, I could actually taste every single ingredient in it with a newly refreshed palate, similar to the one I had as a child. I started to really crave my Morning Greens." -- Shauna R. Martin
