One of our favorite parts of the Four Seasons Costa Rica experience is breakfast. After the first day, our guy Santos had the drill down and had our green juice, aptly named “The Most Green,” awaiting us to start the day. It’s the drink that makes you a better person — it’s that powerful. OK, almost that powerful. Because sometimes, you want to feel like you’re drinking a garden, which is pretty much the case. There is no fruit juice in the Most Green, because really guys, you should eat your fruit and drink your veggies. You also need the fuel to properly hike and enjoy Costa Rica. In honor of that trip to Costa Rica, this is our Four Seasons green juice recipe.

We have to note that the juice bar at the Four Seasons Costa Rica deserves its own feature. Open all day and stocked with the most fresh ingredients, they can whip up any concoction that you dream of. They don’t judge if you want to add in some Costa Rican rum or other spirits to make it more interesting. It’s always 5 o’clock somewhere, and you are on vacation. Also, this green juice recipe is choose your own adventure. We won’t judge either.
Our green juice recipe adds in a few other ingredients to the original Four Seasons Most Green. We like coconut water and ginger, the former of which is great for inflammation and digestion. That’s the great part of the Four Seasons juice bar – it’s choose any adventure. Optimally this is made with a juicer as to get the most concentrated juice. However, if you don’t have a juicer, place all ingredients in your Vitamix and blend on high. The juice should be nice and frothy, about 2 minutes. Pour the juice through a fine sieve strainer to take out all the solids. Then garnish with an edible flower or a slice of cucumber, and serve ice cold.
