In the Reboot Kitchen: Joe’s Mean Green Smoothie

By: Joe Cross

Hey mates! By now you’ve probably tried my favorite Mean Green Juice, and if you haven’t, well I suggest you do! I enjoy a big glass of it at least 3 times a week because it keeps me energized and full of phytonutrients.

Whenever I make the Mean Green I always make enough for two juices. I drink the first batch as soon as it’s juiced and then I store the other half in an air-tight glass container and save it for the next day. But, here’s the trick. I don’t just drink the juice. I still get the amazing nutrients from the Mean Green but I change it up and make it into a smoothie.

Here’s what I do…I add the leftover juice into my Breville blender, then add a frozen banana and 1 cup of almond milk. Blend it up and there you have it…a Mean Green Smoothie!

Juice (and Blend) On!

Joe Cross

More than 20 million people around the world watched Joe Cross juice his way across America, losing 100 pounds and getting off medication in Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead. The film ignited a juicing movement. Viewers around the world have been inspired to start juicing, lose weight and get healthy - and as a result of the film over 370 million glasses of fresh juice have been consumed, 370,000 tons of fruit and vegetables consumed, more than 24.8 million pounds of weight lost, and over 220,000 people are now medication free. Joe's second film, Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead 2 was released in November 2014. Through his journey and the lives of the people he meets throughout the film Joe shares all that he's learned about how to stay healthy in an unhealthy world, revealing that most of us really do have more control over of our health than we think - and that none of us are perfect, especially Joe himself! His book, The Reboot with Joe Juice Diet, hit the New York Times' best seller list in March 2014, and the companion guide The Reboot with Joe Juice Diet Cookbook launched that summer.
