Green Juice Recipe

Green Juice RecipeWe had been drinking a combination of carrot juice with the addition of some beetroot and celery. On doing some research I felt that this freshly squeezed juice that was unbuffered by any fibre contained too much sugar. At about the same time I was reading about green juices but was mentally having a bit if difficulty in coming to terms with extracted GREEN juice. Then after more research I discovered the amazing benefits of adding lemon to green juices and green smoothies and decided to give the green juice a go. Well, I was really surprised at how enjoyable a green juice can be. I don’t have a fixed recipe but have got a general pattern that you can follow to keep this highly nutritious juice palatable.


Cucumber About 1/3 of  Cucumber
Tomato This is optional – but one is plenty
Baby spinach Depending on the size of the leaves – 4 small or 2 large
Sprouts A small handful (of your choice)
Swiss chard A small handful
Apple One is plenty small or half a large
Carrots About 4 large carrots
Lemon The juice from 1 lemon. This will of course depend on the type of lemon and the size and the quantity of juice. Use taste as your guide in the beginning.
Wild greens If you are priveleged enough to have access to some wild greens, add a small handful. Presently we are adding some Stinging Nettle.

Juice this combination through a cold pressed masticating-type juicer and drink as soon as possible. (For the best juicing experience we recommend an Oscar juicer!)
