This simple homemade green juice recipe takes 6 ingredients, 15 minutes, and a juicer or blender (whatever you have will work.) Easy, healthy, and loaded with nutrition.
It tastes so refreshing!
I’ve been making this juice for the past two months, and have seen some great benefits.
My favourite way to enjoy it is first thing in the morning.
I’m probably one of the last people to join the green juice trend! In the past, I’ve enjoyed it occasionally, but I sorta cringe at the price of store-bought green juice!
So, I decided to juice my own greens and veggies, and I’ve been at it consistently for the past two months. Other than the fact that I enjoy the refreshing taste of green juice, it’s been a great way to use up produce. And, personally, I’ve seen some great benefits in increased energy, immunity and more.
Any leafy greens are going to give you those vitamins and nutrients, this recipe makes sure of that, because it’s packed with both kale and romaine. But don’t worry: Extras like carrot, cucumber, and lemon ensure that it’s both healthy and drinkable.
The perfect green juice blend
Building a green juice is super simple, but personally, I like to make sure that I have a good blend of greens, veggies, fruit, and boosters. I also like to go with watery vegetables so that I can maximize the volume of juice that I'm getting.
Here are some ideas for each of those. Really you can't go wrong, and which way you combine these ingredients, you'll have a tasty, healthy juice that will fill your body with nutrients and boost your energy throughout the day.
Watery veggies: celery, cucumber, /broccoli stems
Root veggies: carrots, beets (I like to use yellow)
Fruit: apples, pears, grapefruit
Boosters (for flavour, if you are not allergic): lemon, lime, ginger root, turmeric root, fresh herbs
Use a combination of greens, roots, and fruits and I promise you'll have a delicious juice on your hands. It's important to balance your sugars, so try to incorporate one of the greens into each of your juices.
