A Simple Recipe for Fresh Green Juice | Whole Green Love

13 Oct

Juicing fruits and vegetables can seem overwhelming, cumbersome, and just not that tasty at times. It’s one of those healthy food options that can become TOO healthy and ends up with a not so palatable flavor. Nothing’s worse than spending time picking out new produce for a juice recipe, washing and cutting your goods so they fit nicely in the juicer opening, and then cleaning all the separate pieces of your juicing machine afterwards, only to find out that your juice isn’t even all that good!

Well, this recipe uses easy to find produce, has a mix of fruits and vegetables, and is quite tasty if I do say so myself! It has been my go-to juicing recipe since Ryan and I moved to Jackson. Plus, I love that Ryan is a fan of it too! If you are new to juicing or need a juicing makeover, this recipe might do the trick for you.

Simple & Fresh Green Juice

10 leaves of kale

4 small-medium sized carrots, unpeeled

2 apples, cut into wedges

1 large cucumber, unpeeled

Makes roughly 2 pint sized servings

Clean all of your produce and start juicing away. I always like to juice any greens first, so that the other produce that has more juice can push the green juice through the machine and into the container. I recommend cleaning your juicer sooner than later, so the produce remnants don’t harden onto the pieces making it UGLY difficult to clean.

You may look at your swampy green juice and question it’s taste, but it truly is light and flavorful. Just think of all the healthy antioxidants loaded in that green goodness! I hope this recipe gets you revved up to juice for the first time or gets you back into juicing if it’s been on your back burner for a while. Bottoms up!
