You might not want to go for the store-bought stuff, though. Most store-bought juices have either been made from a concentrate or processed with heat," says nutritionist says Kelly Jones , RD, CSSD. The result: They contain fewer antioxidants in every sugary sip.

Instead, grab a juicer (or a blender!) and a good green juice recipe and DIY your own.

Even if you don't have a juicer, a high-power blender like a Vitamix , Blendtec , or Ninja can get your fibrous fruits and veggies fine enough to sip on like juice, too, Jones says. (Plus, the extra fiber you'll get from making juice in the blender will keep your blood sugar more stable and nourish your good gut bacteria.)

However you whip up your green sips, make sure your green juice recipe incorporates some fruitlike apples and limes. Without the sweetness and acid, typically-bitter greens may leave your juice tasting like grass.

Whether you're looking for Green Juice Lite or the equivalent of a kale salad in a cup, these are the best green juices (and green smoothies!) you can drink.
