Green juices are having a bit of a moment. Thanks to their powerful mix of antioxidants and vitamin-rich ingredients, they have been spotted everywhere from super model Karlie Kloss’ handbag to many a backstage Instagram snap at Fashion Week.
Indeed, from Miranda Kerr to Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, pretty much every catwalk beauty has her own favourite recipe – and for good reason. While they might not always look too appealing, green juices are packed with energy-boosting, immune-system-strengthening, give-you-that-million-dollar-glow properties. Here are some of the model crowds favourite recipes.

This concoction comes from no other than beautiful Aussie model Miranda Kerr – and isn’t she the best advert for a green beauty boost? Having studied nutrition, the 30-year-old is a real wellness enthusiast and knows all about the ingredients that pack the biggest health punch.
