It’s not always easy squeezing in the fruits and veggies you need. This green juice is a powerhouse blend of all the nutrients you need to help strengthen your immune system and keep you feeling awake and active. Juice isn’t a substitute for eating the whole vegetable (you’ll miss out on that healthy fiber), but it’s a great quick boost to help see you through cold and flu season. Plus the apples give it a great tart taste that will make it enjoyable to drink any time of year.
