Craving a freshly-made juice? As much as you love the bright yellow fruit- and vegetable-packed beverage from the neighborhood juice bar, it can get a little costly to buy one each and every time your thirst strikes. But making one at home yourself has its own drawbacks as well. Home juicing takes a lot of time, and it can also get pretty pricey. Plus, have you ever cleaned a juicer? It’s not fun. Does this mean your juicy dreams are dashed? Not one bit! You can make your favorite juices in your blender. It’s so easy and cleanup is a breeze!
