4 Easy Green Juice Recipes That You'll Use Everyday




Green juice is one of the biggest health and wellness trends of the last decade and I am a late adopter!

Celebrities, social media influencers, foodies, and wellness bloggers have all apparently drinking green juice. Now, I have to say I am a late adopter of the Green juice enthusiasm that this drink offers, which is numerous health benefits, including improved digestion, reduced inflammation, and boosted immunity. Now there is no official Green Juice recipe, but common ingredients include celery, kale, Swiss chard, spinach, wheatgrass, cucumber, parsley, and mint.

Just a tip green juice tends to taste bitter when its just greens I often add small quantities of fruit — which may or may not be green — to sweeten it and improve its overall palatability. Choose seasonal options or apples, berries, kiwi, lemons, oranges, and grapefruit. I prefer to make my own homemade green juice but you can buy it from specialty juice cafés too. Just keep in mind that some varieties of commercial green juices contain added sugar, which reduces the drink’s nutrient density. Further to this many bottled green juices are pasteurized. This is a process heats the juice to kill harmful bacteria and extend shelf life, but it may damage some of the heat-sensitive nutrients and plant compounds found in fresh juice. Try to look for cold pressed juices this process protects and preserves the nutrients of the fruits and vegetables. No heat is involved, but it means you still get all the healthy benefits of the fruits and veggies.

If you’re considering adding green juice to your wellness regimen, don’t forget to eat plenty of whole vegetables and fruits as well. Just so you know green juice doesn’t contain much fibre and shouldn’t be used to substitute your veggie or fruit intake. You can mitigate this effect by pairing your juice with a meal or snack that provides fibre and protein, such as flax crackers with cheese & veggie sticks.


But I use the Breville “The Boss To Go Blender” Smoothie Blender so I get whole fruit or vegie drink rather than the pulp extracted like you would in a juicer. For me this cover’s off 2 things that I am not good at..keeping my fruit/vegie on track as well as my water intake for the day as I keep topping the cannister up with water and sip though out the day.







Whilst green juicing is a part of my almost every day now, beginning the green juice journey isn’t always easy. The first few juices do take a little getting use to and to further entice myself I add a teaspoon of some supplement powders like Morlife Alkalising Greens, has original Lemon Lime flavour with Pre & probiotics to support your gut and key alkalising minerals calcium, magnesium and zinc or Melrose Essential C+ Immune which is a unique blend of vitamin C and supporting ingredients like zinc, olive leaf extract, vitamin D and yeast containing beta-glucan. So, my green juice became part of my health routine also.



I often get asked “what green juice recipes do I regularly use? What would I recommend for a beginner who doesn’t love greens?” Here are my four easy and delicious green juice recipes for those whom are starting on their green juice journey. These recipes are tailored to be more pleasing to the palate and still provide you with the important nutrient from dark leafy greens. Just omit the water if your using a extractor or cold press juice machine.
