Pear, Apple & Cinnamon Cleansing Green Juice

Hey friends! Happy 2015!!

2015 cheers

I have been quite a busy woman having lots of fun this week with my family visiting Cali. Here’s a taste of what I’ve been up to:

SanΒ Diego beach sunsets & yoga –

New Year’s Eve in Anaheim: hibachi dinner & drinks –Β 

NYE hibachi

ladies on NYEΒ ….and speaking of food and drinks, I’m feeling like I always feel after the holidays: ready to get back to a more normal routine with less alcohol and sugar, and more whole foods!

I always let myself enjoy the holidays and eat and drink whatever my heart desires, because I think life’s too short not to. But I know that when the holiday madness is over, my body will have had enough indulgence and will be craving my healthier routine…. and that’s exactly where I’m at! So, while I rang in the New Year with a few (more like a bunch!) of alcoholic beverages, today I’m sharing my first green juice recipe of 2015.

Cleansing Juice Ingredients

This juice is both detoxing and delicious. While I’m a chronic cinnamon sprinkler, this is the very first time I’ve ever added some to a green juice. Holy yum, it is so good!

Pear, Apple & Cinnamon Cleansing Green Juice
  • 1 medium Bosc pear
  • 1 medium Granny Smith apple
  • ½ large cucumber
  • ¼ TSP cinnamon
  • Juice from a ¼ medium lemon (or in my case, a ½ baby-sized lemon from my tree)
  • A nub of ginger (around 1 inch)
  • A large handful of spinach
  1. Combine the pear, apple, cucumber, ginger and spinach in a food processor.
  2. Squeeze lemon juice in and sprinkle in cinnamon. Stir well to combine. Add a handful of ice in, and enjoy!


Tell me… How did you ring in the new year? Do you feel like you need to detox from the holidays? Have you had any green juice yet in 2015?

      Thanks! I think I might make it for breakfast tomorrow πŸ™‚ Not a celery fan huh? I like doing cucumber in green juices nowadays, but sometimes I’ll throw celery in there.

    I’m with you on needing to detox from the holidays. I need a sugar detox from all of the peppermint bark I ate. πŸ™‚ I am challenging myself to go the month of January without any white sugar and minimal processed foods (I can’t part with my larabars)! πŸ™‚ Your green smoothie looks amazing. I’ll have to give that recipe a try!

      Ah yes, I ate a lot of peppermint fudge myself…and cookies…and chocolate! Ha.

      Best of luck to you in your January challenge! Completely cutting out white sugar is tough, but you can do it! πŸ™‚

    I love the photos of the sunsets over the ocean. I’m so jealous that you get to see that! πŸ™‚ Glad you had fun with your fam!
