Green Citrus Ginger Pear Juice

February, 2016 · By Coryanne Ettiene

I’m late to the juicing party.  Mainly because I’ve never really had the right tools, nor a place to put a huge juicer, but also because, green juice…  no thanks.  Well that was before I spent the greater part of a day trying every green juice possible, then playing with my new juicer in an effort to recreate my favorite elements of each one in the hopes of coming up with a super juice that I would make every day, and presto: Green Citrus Ginger Pear Juice.  Funny enough, it does not taste green. I even put it to the test, by serving it in a coffee cup with a paper lid and a steel straw, asked my children to sample and not a single one turned their nose up at me.  I kinda felt like a rock star in that moment and wanted to shout “my children drink green juice”, maybe even get it printed on a T-shirt.  But I came to my senses.

It’s not like we don’t drink smoothies and juice all day, every day, but green juice was a walk on the wild side  for us, and now we are all wild and crazy with our green mustaches thanks to this green citrus ginger pear juice; but I digress.  What makes this juice so utter amazing, is the sharpness of the ginger, the sweet of the pear and the zing of the citrus.  It’s like summer in a glass with a clean taste that makes you feel like you need to keep drinking it.  I think it might also be a tiny bit magical.
