This Going Green Juice Recipe is the perfect transitional drink for those who are starting on their juice diet.
Green juices are the most popular beverage that we can find on a juice menu as they are considered to be one of the healthiest options when juicing. However, they are usually vegetable-heavy, which can be unpalatable for some, especially for those juicing newbies.
