Green Ginger Citrus Juice

So far, my juicing has been going great, and I can really feel my taste buds changing and loving the salads I've been having daily.  I find that I'm getting cravings for fruit more than I am for traditional desserts.  This is exactly what I was hoping for when I began juicing and I'm glad that I am getting the health benefits I desired.  I've been steadily losing a bit of weight and finding that I have much more energy during the day.  It feels great!

The last post of my Ginger Citrus Fruit Juice was a big hit on Pinterest, and was re-pinned over 100 times, that I know of!  A reader of mine on this same post asked if this delicious fruit juice could be made into a "green monster", and I loved the idea!  So here is my version of the 'greening' my Ginger Citrus Fruit Juice:

Green Ginger Citrus Juice:
Ingredients:
1 grapefruit, peeled
1 orange, peeled
1 1/2 lemon, peeled
1 inch fresh ginger, peeled
2-4 handfuls of dark greens, washed thoroughly

Directions:  Prepare all ingredients and juice in a power juicer.  Run the pulp through the juicer at least two times (so to get as much liquid from the greens, which don't juice as well as the fruits).  Serve over ice and enjoy!

Amy's Notes:  I used chopped collard greens, but you can also use any other dark green such as spinach, kale, swiss chard, etc.  As I said in the directions, make sure to put the pulp through the juicer at least two times.  This is so that you get all of the juice you can possibly get out of the produce you use.

I think green looks good on me.... What is your favorite dark green to use in juicing or cooking... or wearing haha?
