Juicing can be a wonderful way of getting more nutrients. If you’re just starting out, the first thing you need is a juicer. There are three kinds of machines: centrifugal (fast), masticating (slow), and cold-press. All come at different price points with pros and cons. Find your preference!
Cucumbers and celery are a great place to start to incorporate the benefits of green juice. Both are packed with water, making them excellent candidates for juicing. Green apple adds tons of sweetness and fruity flavor. This recipe is super refreshing, hydrating, and easy to make!
Prep Time: 7 minutes | Makes: 12 ounces
- 2 cucumbers (peeled)
- 4 kale leaves
- 3 green apples (cored)
- 1 cup spinach
- 1 celery stalk
Wash produce thoroughly. I recommend a rinse of 50% water and 50% apple cider vinegar. Chop them up to fit them in your juicer and process. You’re ready to go!
