Here are 2 new green juice recipes. One is light and sweet and the other is tart and has a stronger ‘green’ flavor. Both are equally delicious and of course full of nutrients that are bound to leave you feeling clean & much healthier. Use organic ingredients if possible. Each recipe makes approximately 16 ounces of green juice.
Recipe # 1: Cleansing Green Juice
- 1 large cucumber
- 5 celery stalks
- 2-3 apples
- 1/2 lemon (you can juice with the peel on)
All the celery (a powerful diuretic) in this juice makes it a great cleansing juice recipe!
Recipe #2: Tart & Zing Green Juice
- 2-3 mustard green leaves (they are pretty bitter so use with caution)
- 1/2 inch of ginger, no need to peel!
- 2 apples
- 3 celery stalks
- A handful of cilantro
Adding ginger to a juice definitely boosts its anti-inflammatory power, strengthens the immune system & improves circulation. It also gives the juice that ‘zing’ flavor!
~Juice & Enjoy!~
Here’s a new green juice recipe I made this weekend that I absolutely enjoyed and wasn’t too ‘green’ tasting. While I can usually tolerate the greenest of juices I realize many can’t, especially those new to juicing. So in an effort to convert as many people to my green-juice-loving cult I am making an effort to create veggie and fruit recipes that are light, tasty and refreshing. This recipe fits that bill to a T!
- 2-3 really large handfuls of romaine lettuce
- 1 green apple
- 1 large head of broccoli
- 1/2 lemon
This should make somewhere between 14-16 ounces. I’ll definitely be making this recipe over and over again.
~Juice and Enjoy!~
PS: I called it my Sunday snack because I drank it this afternoon/evening while trying to figure out what to make for dinner. It filled me up and kept me thinking straight so I could make a healthy choice. Yay Juice!
I really like how simple, tasty and affordable this recipe is. For anyone who’s starting out juicing, you may have began to realize that it’s easy to go through your supply of veggies and fruits pretty quickly by juicing them. This recipe uses veggies and fruits that are pretty inexpensive (at least where I am) and still pack a whole lot of nutrients. Celery juice is anti-inflammatory, a diuretic and lowers cholesterol. As for carrot juice…well folks…it really does improve and/or maintain vision. I wear glasses, and I really do believe that my prescription stopped getting worse (as it was in previous years) thanks to all the carrot juice I’ve been drinking in the past few years. Oranges and Lemons are loaded with vitamin C which is by far one of the most powerful antioxidants.
Here’s the recipe:
4 stalks of organic celery (folks, please note that conventional celery is very very very high on the list of veggies loaded with pesticides, there’s quite a few veggies and fruits I buy conventional due to cost or availability and celery is NEVER one of them)
3 organic carrots
1 organic orange (washed, peeled and cut in half)
1/2 an organic lemon (wash thoroughly and leave peel on)
~Juice and Enjoy!~
