Apple, Carrot, Parsley, Spinach Juice

I have a new favorite green juice that I wanted to share with you all today…apple carrot parsley spinach juice! It is a great combination of flavors with the apple and carrot taking the lead and then giving you a hint of that parsley and the spinach. It’s also, as you might already assume, a green juice that is not only delicious but also very nutritious!

Serves: one

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 apple
  • 3 carrots
  • 1/2 cup of parsley (basically a handful)
  • 1 cup of spinach

When you juice all of your fruits and vegetables, be sure to juice the spinach and the parsley in the middle. I found that when I juiced this for the first time and put the spinach and parsley in last, I did not get all of it to juice. If you simply juice the apple and then the parsley and spinach and end with the carrots you’ll find that more of the greens get juiced properly and don’t get clumped up in your juicer.

In the process of juicing…

Why these fruits and vegetables? The apple in it is sweet which helps make this juice taste even better. The carrots will help keep your skin nourished and your eyesight well. The parsley actually reduces inflammation throughout the body. The spinach is also anti-inflammatory, like the parsley. It additionally has many antioxidants to help combat things like high blood pressure.

In general, eating a daily diet that includes many fruits and vegetables like the ones in this juice can help to keep you feeling healthy and looking healthy!

This apple carrot parsley spinach juice not only gives you a variety of health benefits but is also very filling. You can enjoy this green juice at any time of the day. I personally enjoy it for breakfast with a piece of toast and hummus.

Regardless of when you choose to have it, enjoy your nutritious and delicious green juice!
