I’ll be honest – I totally forgot to buy ingredients for juice this week. This one is made from whatever I could find in the fridge, so while it’s not my favourite juice, I was able to use up some things that might have otherwise gone bad. That being said, Esrah seemed to love it, so… win win?
I have never been a fan of the idea of mixing carrots and kale. They both just have such distinct flavours that I never expected to work. And yet, somehow they worked pretty well in this juice. Strong earthy flavours, yes, but balanced. Maybe I’m just not a fan of savoury juice, or maybe I’m just not used to drinking more savoury ingredients. Nevertheless, this juice is still packed with lots of good nutrients, and I could probably use a little less sugar in my life anyways!
This made enough for two. Don’t be surprised either when it comes out a little brown! Green + orange aren’t the best combo.
- 1 bunch kale
- 4 carrots
- 1/2 a bunch of celery
- 2 oranges
- 1 small apple
- a little knob of ginger
Kale is full of calcium, potassium, magnesium, and phosphorus, making it good for your bones, teeth, energy levels, blood pressure, and overall health. Carrots are great for your eyes and skin, as they are seriously packed with vitamin A, as well as other traces of vitamins and minerals. Oranges and apples have amounts of vitamin C and potassium making them great for your immune system as well as your overall health. So, while this juice might not have been my favourite, it was certainly an extremely efficient way to get some extra vitamins and minerals in, and you can’t go wrong with that!
What a sweet summer Sunday. This is usually our grocery day, otherwise known as us hoarding as many fruits and vegetables as we can fit into our $100 budget. I just finished off a 6 day work week and was looking for a bit of a refresher, and this juice did the trick.
Green juice is just the best. Pick a leafy green (or two), a little water content (celery, cucumber), a little sweetness (apple, orange, pineapple) and a little zest (lime, lemon, ginger) and you’re good to go. The possibilities are endless.
- 1/2 a bunch of spinach
- 1 bunch of kale
- 4 small apples or 2 big ones
- 1 cucumber
- 1 lime
This was so simple, but so delicious. And just look at that colour!
Spinach is full of calcium, magnesium, potassium, vitamin A, and even a little bit of vitamin C. Kale also has lots of calcium, potassium, as well as vitamin C and folate. The apples add a little extra vitamin C, in addition to potassium and vitamin A. Limes, of course, also add a pop of vitamin C. This juice is a great immune booster, good for your eyes, bones, and skin, and helps to reduce blood pressure. What’s not to love?
This juice was a great pick-me-up after having one of those weeks, where nothing seems to go right and the weather still can’t seem to make up it’s mind. It was super refreshing, fruity and green (the best!).
Pineapple green juice is probably my favourite kind of green juice. So sweet. Kind of hurts your tongue sometimes but still worth it. I didn’t expect it to go well with ginger, but let’s be real, everything goes well with ginger.
This made enough for 3. If I had a better juicer it would probably make enough for 4! Wash, peel, and chop.
- 2 bunches of kale
- 3 celery stalks
- 3/4 of a pineapple
- 1 lemon
This juice is seriously packed with potassium. I should use kale and pineapple more often, because they’re both loaded with potassium, calcium, vitamin C, vitamin A, and traces of other minerals like magnesium and folate. Total super-juice. I won’t go into detail about how good ginger is for you (again) but let’s just say, definitely add it because it’s delicious and so great for your body. This juice is also good for your heart, immune system, eyesight, and bones. 10/10 would recommend!
I’m back from Smithers today, after a wonderful relaxing week with my mom and my best dog friend. You never realize how much you value spending time with people until you have to say goodbye.
I love green juice! Seriously, I go nuts with green juice. When I first started making smoothies and juices my favourite was always green juice.
I added cilantro to this last minute, and it added a pleasant unexpected freshness. Even the fiancé, who refuses to put cilantro in anything, enjoyed this one.
This made enough for two and a little extra. Wash everything real good, remove the seeds from the apple, peel the lemon (or don’t but I’ll judge you).
- 2 bunches kale
- 3 stalks of celery
- 3/4 of a cucumber
- 2 green apples
- 1 lemon
- handful of cilantro
This was seriously like an earthy green lemonade. Kale is full of calcium and potassium, as is celery which also has a bunch of vitamin A. Cucumber and granny smith’s also have lots of potassium and vitamin A. The moral is drink this one for potassium and vitamin A, friends. It’s good for your body.
