Juicing—a detox trend with roots in the celeb world—is now mainstream. Supermarket shelves are loaded with bottled blends, while juice bars are popping up across the U.S. But they can be pricey, so save your green and try this affordable, vitamin-packed version.

Directions

  • In a blender, combine 1 1/2 cups cold water, 1 cup frozen kale, 1 1/2 cored and roughly chopped green apples, 2 stalks roughly chopped celery, 1/4 cup fresh parsley, 2 tablespoon fresh mint and 2 tablespoons lemon juice.
  • Blend until smooth and pour through a fine mesh strainer. Serve over ice.
