Spicy Green Juice (Green Bloody Mary Mix)

My number one issue with most green juice recipes is that they are always too sweet. Most classic green juice recipes call for the addition of apples or pears, which makes the drink much sweeter than anything I'd ever want to drink for breakfast (or really at any time of day!).


That's why I love this spicy "just greens" recipe--it's spicy from the jalapeño and hot sauce, a little bit tart thanks to some fresh lemon juice, and very refreshing. It's a perfect drink to enjoy in the morning, or add a little booze for a "green Bloody Mary" alternative to serve with brunch. I recommend gin or tequila for a fun twist on the classic!

You'll need a juicer for this one, but it doesn't have to be anything fancy. I have this super affordable Hamilton Beach juicer that I bought on Amazon (affiliate link), and while no means the best juicer in the world, it totally gets the job done.

(And if you think about it, that's just the cost of about 4 or 5 juices from a fancy juice shop, so it'll basically pay for itself in less than a week!)
