Green With Envy Juice (Kale, Cucumber, Mint, and More)

As stated in my last post, I am devoting this week to juice recipes inspired by theRejuicenate initiative created by Foxy. A representative from Foxy shared with me some of their recipes and today is the first of three that I'll be sharing with you here!

Part of the Rejuicenate project is to encourage individuals not only to juice but also to use the pulp made from juicing vegetables. It's a great idea, and I definitely wanted to share one of those recipes with you. Take a look.

Foxy's Green With Envy Juice and Super Human Hummus
For the Green With Envy Juice, ingredients are as follows:

2 stalks kale
1/2 large cucumber
3 leaves romaine lettuce
2 sprigs of mint
1/2-inch piece of peeled ginger
1 tablespoon lemon juice

When finished making and drinking, make the Super Human Hummus with these ingredients:

1 16-ounce container already made hummus
1 cup of pulp from your Green With Envy Juice
2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt, to taste
Lemon juice, to taste

Combine the hummus and pulp. If it's too thick, add water until desired consistency is reached. Taste and adjust with the lemon juice and salt. Then drizzle with the olive oil before serving. They recommend eating it with celery sticks! Are you ready for a hummus closeup!?

I will be sharing two more of Foxy's recipes with you. If you can't wait until Wednesday for the next one, go ahead and check them out on the Rejuicenate website. Tomorrow I'll be sharing my own recipe for what I'm calling Really Pink Juice!

Have you ever reserved your juicing pulp for another purpose? I'd love to hear about it! Leave me a comment with your recipe, or a story of your personal experiences.
