When we asked Holli Thompson, author of the lifestyle guidebook Discover Your Nutritional Style for her guilty pleasure, she was kind enough to reveal her recipe for a greentini, a healthier take on the traditional vodka martini. Now you can enjoy bonus nutrients while having a little fun. Find her book in stores and online, and head to for more fun recipes.


  • 2 organic cucumbers
  • 3 stalks celery
  • 2 cups spinach
  • 5 leaves chard or kale
  • 1 bunch cilantro
  • 1 Granny Smith apple
  • 1 organic lemon with ends removed and rind on
  • 1-inch piece of ginger
  • 1 thumbnail-sized piece of ginger, crushed
  • Lemon juice, from 1/2 an organic lemon
  • Thumbnail-sized piece of ginger
  • 2 shots organic vodka
  • Ice cubes
  • Candied ginger, organic (for garnish)


  1. For green juice: Rinse cucumbers, celery, spinach, chard or kale, cilantro, apple, whole lemon and 1-inch piece of ginger well. Add ingredients to a juicer and run until the liquid is smooth. (If you don’t have a home juicer, make this in a blender—it will come out as a delicious green smoothie.) Makes about 32 ounces.
  2. Fill a shaker or Mason jar with 2 shots of green juice, 2 shots of vodka, juice from ½ a lemon, crushed of ginger, and ice cubes. Shake well.
  3. Strain and pour into your fanciest martini glass.
  4. Garnish with organic candied ginger and enjoy.
Serves 2
