Good Morning, Green Juice!
Sometimes you just need to give your body a break and This juice is the perfect “pick me up” drink!
There are many health benefits of drinking freshly juiced fruits and vegetables. Juicing helps you absorb all the nutrients from the vegetables. It also allows you to consume a HUGE amount of vegetables with a quick glass of juice
Here is what I use..
Yes I use both Lemon & Lime in this.. It’s 2 different flavors. I personally love lime in fresh juices. It gives a yummy zing. They are acidic but when you eat them, they turn alkaline. Lemons & limes are amazing at eliminating the bitter taste of the dark, deep green leafy vegetables that provide most of the benefits of juicing.
If you haven’t juiced ginger, then start slowly. It has a very hot & spicy taste but is INCREDIBLY good for you.
Fresh ginger juice burns a little, kind of like taking a shot of liquor without the alcohol taste. The burn is a good thing… If you find this drink to strong for you.. ADD Cucumber, Celery and/or Romaine Hearts.. This will dilute the spiciness of the ginger
I add apple for some sweetness and it’s perfect for me. But there is never a set in stone recipe – especially in juicing, so experiment and see what works for you.
Did you know?? Kale Packs more iron per calorie than beef, more calcium per calorie than milk and ten times more vitamin C than spinach! Remember that next time someone ask a vegetarian “how do you get your protein?”
and to all you pregnant ladies out there….Morning Sickness Cure is here.. Lemon & Ginger are a natural, fast acting remedy to ease nausea.
*Ginger Juice is great for relieving monthly cramps too!!!!
I do not peel my lemon or lime.. I know some might disagree but thats just how I roll. TONS of vitamins, nutrients & flavor are in the peel.. Why would you waste time peeling it?
*Use pesticide free fruits & vegetables (organic) and WASH before Juicing.
Drink your Juice right away or store in a glass jar with an airtight lid and fill it to the very top. There should be a minimum amount of air in the jar as the oxygen will “oxidize” and damage the juice.
- 3-5 kale leaves & stalk
- 1 whole lemon
- 1 whole lime

If you find this drink to strong for you.. ADD Cucumber, Celery or Romaine Hearts.. This will dilute the spiciness of the ginger
[…] 4. Tasty Green Juice When it comes to drinking green juice, if it doesn’t taste good you probably aren’t going to drink it with enough regularity for it to make a noticeable difference. […]
Can you use frozen Kale? If not what can you use instead of kale in the green juices?
Best regards Maria
Hi Maria, I would only use fresh vegetables.. If you cannot find fresh kale, use spinach, collards or some other dark leafy green..
[…] 4. Tasty Green Juice There’s an entire lemon in this green juice, so it will have the taste of that citrusy tartness, which is balanced out by the sweetness from three apples. There’s plenty of kale added so you’ll get vitamins and minerals in the form of Vitamin A and Vitamin C, as well as magnesium and potassium. If you don’t have a proper juicer you can blend these items up and then strain the juice through cheesecloth. […]
