4 great green juice recipes from CoolerCleanse


1/7

coolercleanse green juice recipesEric Helms, founder of CoolerCleanse and Juice Generation, and his team joined The View last week.

Their mission? To prove to its lively hosts that “kale is the new bacon”—only better for you, while he poured samples of his popular green juices.

(Watch Elisabeth Hasselbeck basically place an order for a juicer before the commercial break!)

For those who need no introduction to the benefits of green juice—Helms provided the recipes!

We’ve got four of his favorite green juice recipes, and they vary in seriousness and sweetness from Essential Green to Garden Green Coco, which has serious summer wow-factor if you serve it in a young Thai coconut shell. (You can buy the coconuts at Juice Generation.)

Consider this your summer crash course in green juices! Get the recipes now…

You can’t live on green juice alone. Smarty Pants gummy vitamins are an easy-to-swallow way to get the nutrients you may be missing—like vitamin D and omega-3s—even with all that kale.
