Instead of turning to caffeine this morning when you need a jolt of energy, why not throw some produce in the blender and get some nutrient-filled raw energy? The Lean Green Machine has the perfect blend of sweet and tart balanced out by the mellow flavors of spinach and celery.
Sure, you could throw all of this in a juicer, but I prefer it in a blender. With all the fiber intact, it gives the juice a little more “oomph.”
