green juice

This title is a little vague, because every juice I make is green. There's just no point in juicing, if you're not going to throw something green in there, right? This is my motto with smoothies as well. Green, always.

So even though this juice isn't pretty, it's really good and really green.




ingredients:
2-3 large, sweet apples, quartered (I used jonagold)
1 inch chunk of ginger, peeled
2 cups of spinach
1/2 lemon

directions:
Place first 3 ingredients in a juicer, and juice. Squeeze in the juice from 1/2 and stir. Serve immediately. Yields approximately 16 oz.

  1. it's funny because even if my smoothies are 95% made up of greens, i HAVE to throw something in to make it purple or red- i just can't get myself to drink green liquid.
    i really need to get back into juicing. our juicer is such a monster and such a hassle to clean though :/

  3. Melisande - I'm the same way with smoothies, but not juice! I usually add blueberries to a smoothie, and then it turns out gray. My juice isn't the most user friendly either, but I'm not of one that is.

    Mat - They're pricey, but worth it.

  4. I don't have a juicer, is there a way I could add ice and work it in a blender? A green juice smoothie?
    Help, I'm poor!

  5. I made a juice yesterday, and it was so tart and sweet that I couldn't drink it. I'm just not a juice person I think. Now smoothies, on the other hand... I make a mean smoothie. Thankfully my boys are not opposed to green either. I would love to have a non-dairy smoothie recipe, though. The ones I've tried just don't do it for me. Maybe I should try almond milk or something like that?

  6. I love juicing, and sometimes make a morning drink with beets and apples and carrots. Great and easy recipe!

  7. Crystle - I've heard of people using the liquefy setting on a blender, then blending the mixture to a pulp, but I think you have to strain it, which could be a mess? I've never tried it!

    Mary - I drink juice once or twice a week. It's really too sweet for me too, but if I use one piece of fruit and the rest veggies I don't feel too bad about the sugar. I always use soy milk in my smoothies, I just think it tastes better.

    Fashion Tales - I LOVE beet/apple juice. So does my little one. She calls it blood juice. :]

  8. Ohh I love making fresh juice and putting a big chunk of fresh ginger in, I also tend to put raw garlic in there too because I love it, despite reeking afterwards!

    I'll definitely be giving this one a go when I'm home from America!

    1. you're welcome! ginger is a great addition to just about any juice, just add a little to begin with because it's spicy!

  12. I never make green juice, or smoothie. I should, but I don't.
    But I put in some oatmeal in my breakfast smoothie, does that count? ;)
