Carrots make a great substitute for fruit in a green juice, adding sweetness and loads of vitamin A, which promotes good eye sight.

Springtime Favorites

Strawberry green juice is a favorite at my house.  It’s a great juice to offer while hosting friends and family for brunch! Strawberries are chock-full of vitamin C and many other essential nutrients and antioxidants. For parents out there, this green juice comes kid-tested, as my son Cooper loves it.
