Green Juice!

Green juice.

Get into it.

It’s my latest obsession and it’s tasty. I realize that it might freak you out at first but trust me, this juice is obsession worthy.

I’ve been into juicing lately. I did a few juice cleanses here and there and now I’m making my own daily. Okay so maybe it’s not every day, but every other day is still good right?

Let me let you in on a little juice secret. They make you feel really really good. I know, weird right? All those fruits and vegetables packed in a juice and it makes you feel good? What a concept right? But this green juice is just kinda amazing.

Also, I’m absolutely not into making new years resolutions like eliminating cookies from my diet (because let’s be real here, cookies are a food group and it would be wrong to try and eliminate them completely) but I am into making changes that are good for you. Like this green juice. I’m obsessed.

It’s basically like fitting all these glorious fruits and vegetables along with their vitamins, minerals and antioxidants into your body and then giving yourself a giant hug. Hands down, you just feel good after drinking this.

My green juice is made up of super foods like kale, spinach, romaine, apples, ginger, lemons, parsley, cucumber and celery. I drink it for breakfast every day. And then I go off on my merry way to do whatever it is I need to do with a smile on my face knowing that if I have a few cookies later in the day, at least I got my green juice in for breakfast.

Basically all you have to do is throw a bunch of ingredients into your juicer and let the juicer do it’s work. The result is this glorious green juice πŸ™‚ If you’re new to juicing and the sight of this green juice totally freaks you out, I think it’s safe to add an extra apple or two to your juice to give it a bit more sweetness.

I use a Breville juicer – any of these are fab!

Green Juice

This green juice is packed full of vitamins and minerals and makes for the perfect meal on the go. This recipe makes enough for 2 large glasses of juice. I typically have 1 large glass a day, and then pop the second glass in the fridge for the following morning. Fast, simple and totally healthy!

    We used to feed this to our little one as a baby. Guess we should be drinking it ourselves!!

  2. Aimee @ Simple Bites

    I imagine the ginger gives this a nice little kick. Making my shopping list with these ingredients right now! Maybe I can kick my cold to the curb with your green juice. Thanks, Gaby!

  3. Deborah

    I’m living at my parent’s house right now, and my mom has a juicer. I keep thinking I need to take full advantage of it, and maybe today is a good time to start!!

  4. Allison [Girl’s Guide to Social Media]

    I have been thinking of juicing, but just don’t know where to begin. Thanks for sharing this recipe. I think it may be the place where I finally start this thing.

    I agree. Cookies are a food group and I would throw in chocolate as a food group as well. πŸ™‚

    Yummy. I usually add some apple for sweetness so my hubby will drink it otherwise I cannot get him to.

  6. Laura @ Gluten Free Pantry

    I love green juices! I have never tried using a cucumber. I will have to try out this recipe soon!

  7. aida mollenkamp

    Unlike a lot of other juice recipes, I can actually imagine liking this one. Thanks, G!

  8. Ann P.

    Seeing this post this morning means that I should definitely break out our old juicer and get to work being healthy! I’ve never tried a completely green juice before, but I think it’s about time to start!

  9. Krissy @ Make it Naked

    Just made this in my blendtec. Drinking it this second and it’s really great. I used granny smith apples, peeled the lemon and left the kale stems on. I also added about a 1/2 cup of water to thin it out (since I blended it all instead of juicing). It filled two pint glasses. Thanks Gaby!

    • Kate

      thanks! I was wondering if anyone just threw it in a blender!!

    • Gaby

      Hey Kate!

      I’ve never tried it in a blender – but I make something similar in a blender with kale – so I bet it would be fine! Just a little chunky πŸ™‚

    This looks wonderful! I don’t own a juicer anymore but I do make green smoothies in my Blend-tec blender….get the fiber and all. I love this combination, especially using green apples to naturally sweeten it and ginger gives it a nice kick! Happy New Year!

  11. Jaden

    I just started juicing!!! loving it and it does absolutely feel good πŸ™‚

  12. Lisa @ Life in Green

    Yes! I’m so glad you’re into juicing right now, as I just got one for Xmas and am ready to go juice crazy. This looks like a good one.

  13. Miranda

    I got into the smoothies for a while, they are (surprisingly) very tasty! I’ll give this a shot!

  14. Emilie @ Emilie’s Enjoyables

    I love green juice, thanks so much for posting your recipe, I’m always looking for different variations. Love the new layout by the way!

  15. Brooke

    you are so adorable it hurts. I can just picture you sipping down a glass of this gorgeous green juice and scampering along on your merry way. I might even imagine you skipping. ‘Cause that’s how cute your are. Seriously. #Obsessed.

  16. Heather

    That’s funny, I just bought some green juice and thought to myself I could probably make something like it at home. Perfect timing! I don’t have a juicer though, can you blend it and then put through a strainer? Also, is it something you can add flax seed to?

    • Gaby

      Hey Heather! you could totally try and make this in a blender. I don’t think it would strain very well – but you could just turn it into a green juice smoothie πŸ™‚ Just add some ice!

  17. Stella

    I’ve had a Breville juicer for months but haven’t used it. I’m going to break it out tonight. Thanks for the recipe. I would so appreciate more…..I’m just not creative or adventurous that way. Love your blog!

  18. Lucy Lean

    Gaby, thank you so much for this wonderful post. I need to start getting into this green juice too! I can’t wait to see how it makes me feel inside as you say! Now following ya for continual inspiration!

  22. Aggie

    Green juice rocks! I have to say, this looks delicious πŸ™‚ I love putting ginger in mine!

  23. GreenGirl

    Love this idea! Just a quick question though, does the drink lose any of it’s potency if you put in the fridge for a day or a few days? I imagine it would separate a bit, but just wondering if there would be any other adverse side effects.

    • Gaby

      Just give it a shake if you keep it in the fridge overnight!! Still tastes delish! Also, keep it in a sealed container so it stays fresh πŸ™‚
