Ingredients for Green Juice

Today seemed like a good day to try making a new green juice. What I came up with was a surprisingly delicious juice that is low in calories yet extremely high in vitamins and minerals. By combining broccoli, spinach leaves, cucumbers, apples, and ginger root, I came up with this new green juice. If you are looking for a new juicing recipe, this is definitely one to try!

Makes two 1 cup servings

Green Juice Recipe

Here’s what you’ll need:

Layers of all the juiced fruits and veggies

  • 1/2 head of broccoli
  • 2 cups of spinach
  • 2 apples
  • 1/2 inch of ginger root
  • 2 mini (6″) cucumbers

Simply wash all of your fruits and vegetables and then cut your fruits and vegetables into juicer-appropriate chunks so you don’t overwhelm your juicer. Put everything in your juicer. I don’t really think order matters that much but I’ll tell you what I did.

I started with one apple and then moved onto juice the two cups of spinach. I then juiced one of the mini cucumbers and then did the broccoli.

Final green juice

I added in the ginger root and finished juicing with the last apple.

I think that alternating like this with something like a cucumber or apple which has more juice sometimes helps to keep things moving and helps to avoid clumps of pulp in your juicer.

Once you have juiced all of your fruits and vegetables, stir your juice so that all of the different juicers are well mixed.

This juice recipe makes two 1-cup servings so you can pour that out into two cups. If you only want to make one cup, then you can simply take half of all of the ingredients above and juice.

I think this is a great green juice to have to start off your day. I had mine with a piece of toast and hummus to get some more fiber and protein packed into my breakfast.
