How to make "Mean Green Juice"

I've been asked to share this recipe showing produce and the resulting juice. Served over ice is the key if you don't think green is your favorite color drink.

Gadget used:  (expensive, yes, but it's an investment in your health and the health of your family)
In the very last photo, you'll see how efficient this juicer is in extracting every drop of juice from fruits & vegetables. There is a full two cups of juice and the pulp extruded is bone dry.  


This is the juice that is featured as the "Mean Green Juice Recipe" on the Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead site.
