Everyday Green Juice

green-juice

MMM!! There is nothing quite like a big glass of Delicious Green juice to wake your body up and fill it with a quick shot of instant goodness! My husband and I drink our green juice every morning and really feel the difference.

My go to recipe is:

  • 2 different heads of greens (kale, chard, romaine, etc.)
  • either a celery or cucumber base (3-5 stalks of celery or 1/2-whole cucumber)
  • 1-2 green apples

It is really very simple and the whole process from washing the greens, juicing to cleaning the juicer happens in less than 15 minutes! So there is no time excuse for me, unless I am truly rushing out the door and then I could always stop at a local juice place and order it up 🙂 I always try to use as many organic veggies as possible. We drink these raw and we want to get the maximum benefits, so organic is the only way to go!

I recently wrote a post on my Juice Feast  that has information on juicers and local NYC places to go.

Today I really love the juice that I made!! It is so yummy and sweet!

  • 2 heads of romaine
  • 1 head of kale
  • 1 green apple
  • 1 gala apple
  • 5 small carrots

I normally do not put carrots in because they are a high glycemic vegetable. (although most vegetables are really low glycemic in the actual index compared to other foods) But today I only had one green apple and was just mixing it up a bit. It is fun sometimes to just throw whatever you have in the fridge right into the juicer 🙂 It is also super fun to mix it up and try out different recipes.

    I found your site on a search for crockpot oatmeal (for a Sierra Club retreat). That recipe and this one would look great, but it would be helpful to note the amount the recipe yields. Thanks! Audrey

      Thanks Audrey 🙂 We usually get 2 tall glasses from the juice recipe – so perfect for 2 people 🙂 Sorry I don’t always list the serving amounts – but I normally like to cook big so we can have leftovers – so normally for at least 4 people for all my meals 🙂 Hope that helps!!
