Yes it's the Mean Green Juice from Fat Sick & Nearly Dead. It's good in a good-for-you but not horrible tasting kind of way. I cut down to 3 stalks of celery, add a carrot and a couple sprigs of fresh parsley, then increase the lemon to one full, without the peel, and I like it better for my taste. Funny part of the recipe is that if you are using a slow juicer, 10 mins prep and ready in 10 mins is a total joke. If I count from start of prep to end of clean-up and putting away the machine I've never been able to do it in under an hour. It sounds crazy but I check the clock and time just flies, and I'm not a slow poke either. It's a total pain in the butt, but I am sure this same recipe made in a blender would be yucky. I do love mixing smoothies into my routine, alternating with juicing, for the fiber, but the smoothies I make are semi frozen and sweetened with banana, pineapple, mango etc so they are more like a treat even though I can sneak some kale or other leafy greens into them. So those reviewers that tried this exact recipe in a blender, yeah I could imagine you'd never want to make it again. But using a juicer, it's really not that bad. The key is the lemon which oddly enough makes it sort of sweeter, and don't overdo it on the celery or the ginger.
