How to Juice Without a Juicer

*This article was taken from foodbabe.com 

Below are step by step instructions on how to juice without a juicer: All you need is the vegetables and fruits you want to juice, a fine mesh strainer or nut milk bag, and a high powered blender. (FYI: Here are my recommendations for blenders and juicers in case you are wondering!)

Step 1:

Clean your organic fruits and vegetables thourougly – I like to completely submerge my leafy greens in water and let the dirt and sendiment fall to the bottom of the bowl, and rinse the greens twice more with fresh filtered water.

Step 2:

Add a few tablespoons of water to a clean blender, juice of one lemon (if part of the recipe) and slowly add the dark leafy greens. I find that blending the greens first produces the best result – you only need to blend for about 30 seconds.

Step 3:

Add other fruits and vegetables and blend well (about 1 or 2 mins)

Step 4:

Strain mixture through a fine mesh strainer or through a nut milk bag for a less pulpy silky smooth result. (Tip: Some people find it less messy to strain into a large bowl first instead of directly into a glass). 

Step 5:

Enjoy your beautiful green juice immediately – do not store the juice for later if you want to get the most nutrition from the juice. This blending method produces some heat and oxidizes your juice more than cold-press juicers.
