Thursday’s BUZZworthy Recipe: Green Smoothie and Juice



  • 2 cups of fresh mixed herbs (basil, parsley, cilantro)
  • 2 cucumber, cut in half lengthwise
  • ½ lime, peel and pith removed
  • 1 apple, cored and cut into wedges
  • 1 pear, cored and cut into wedges
  • 2 Tablespoons Raspberry Honeysimple syrup
  • ½ cup coconut juice (optional)


Starting with the fresh herbs, juice everything into pitcher and stir in the simple syrup to sweeten. Coconut juice is not needed if you are using a juicer.

If you don’t have a juicer, chop all the ingredients and toss them into a blender. When the ingredients are blended, pass the mixture through a fine-mesh strainer and into a pitcher. Stir and drink immediately. Pour over ice and serve as a refreshing virgin cocktail.
