3 simple green juice recipes from the founders of BluePrint

1 / 5
BPC foundersZoe Sakoutis and Erica Huss are the New York-chic founders of BluePrint, the busy urban professional's juice and cleanse company of choice.

When they're not sipping from BluePrint bottles, they whip up their own juices at home—a practice we thought might interest you.

(Especially if you live in New York and getting to your local juice bar or a Whole Foods right now is treacherous or a 30-block hike...)

Here, Sakoutis and Huss share three of their fave do-it-yourself green juice recipes from their popular book, The 3-Day Cleanse.
