Treat yourself to a bright green boost with this Refreshing Citrus Mint Green Juice!

There are many ways to start your day off on the right foot. Hydration, mindfulness, and self-appreciation, simple stretching and exercise — the list goes on and on! We do our best to check off as many of these boxes each day, but we get it. Sometimes “life happens” and there just isn’t enough time. One thing we can be sure of is that we are blocking out enough time each day to whip up this perfectly healthy and vitalizing Refreshing Citrus Mint Green Juice!

A little change for the better

We’re no stranger to green juice here at Nutrition Stripped, and we LOVE to support our local juice shops here in Nashville. That being said, good juice just isn’t cheap, and if you like to enjoy it as much as we do, it can rack up quite the price tag. By simply investing in a juicer, using organic/seasonal vegetables, you can make delicious juice for a fraction of the cost.

Whatever the day throws your way, this Refreshing Citrus Minty Green Juice will add some pep in your step!




Cucumbers not only taste light and refreshing but contain unique antioxidants and polyphenols that have been studied for their effects on reducing some cancers, reducing cardiovascular disease, has anti-microbial properties, and reducing inflammation.

As with most fruits and vegetables, cucumbers contain good amounts of fiber that help our digestive system moving, keeps us fuller for a longer period of time, and releases a steady flow of energy into our bodies.


Celery is also mostly made of water, containing vitamins A, K, C, B vitamins, beta-carotene (our body then converts to vitamin A). As well as phytonutrients, calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, manganese, and phosphorus.


Ginger has been shown to help fight inflammation with certain cancers, such as ovarian and colon cancers. Diseases such as arthritis, muscular pain or swelling, and joint pain. As well as reducing symptoms of common ailments like colds, nausea, arthritis, migraines, and hypertension.
