Martha's Favorite Green Juice

Martha drinks this immune-boosting cocktail of nutritious fruits and vegetables every morning. Her refreshing green juice recipe allows for plenty of substitutions: Don't have pears on hand? Add an apple instead! Have some fresh spinach or kale that needs to get used? Either works great. With this vibrant and versatile formula on hand, it's easy to drink green.

Banana-Yogurt Smoothie
