RECIPE: Green Juice That Doesn't Taste Green For Detox and Glowing Skin (Using a blender)

8:55:00 AM

Green Juice Recipe
Ever wanted to try living a healthy lifestyle but don't know where to start?
Well, this is one of the easiest ways I know.

GREEN JUICE

The recommended daily intake of vegetables for adults is 5 - 6 serves.
1 serve is equivalent to about 1 cup of leafy greens/raw salad.
You get tonnes of vegetables and all it's raw nutrients in this green juice.
The best part, it doesn't even taste like green juice!

Proof?

My boyfriend doesn't particularly fancy eating vegetables, but he LOVES this green juice.

Also, not to worry if you don't have a juicer.
NEITHER DO I.
I'll show you how to make this green juice using a blender, it's easy!

This juice contains a mere 5 ingredients. 
Kale, cucumber, apples, baby spinach and lemon juice.
Each and every ingredient is packed full of nutrients and vitamins that are really healthy for the body. Here are their health benefits:

Kale - Lowers cholesterol which can reduce risk of heart disease, contains cancer-fighting substances, high in beta-carotene, makes you feel full to help weight loss

Spinach - Helps maintain healthy hair, skin, eyes and strong bones, aids in digestion, lowers risk for heart disease, contains cancer-fighting substances, improves blood glucose control in diabetes

Lemon - Helps with indigestion and constipation, aids in weight loss, helps to detox the body, maintains healthy skin and hair, helps with high blood pressure and respiratory problems

Cucumber - Reduces risk of cancer, supports heart and digestive health, helps to manage stress and maintain healthy weight

Apple - High in fibre and water which makes them filling and aids in weight loss, lowers risk of heart disease, cancer and diabetes, contains prebiotic which promotes good gut bacteria, contains anti-inflammatory compounds that can help fight asthma and promote bone health

Ingredients (Serves about 6 - 7 cups)

Green Juice Recipe
1 bunch of kale, washed
2 lemons, washed
9 apples, washed
1 bag of baby spinach (about 120g)
1 long cucumber, washed

Method
 Chop the kale, apples and cucumber into small chunks to fit into blender.
For this amount of ingredients, I had to blend in two batches so divide ingredients into two and add into blender.
Squeeze the lemon above your opened palms so catch any falling seeds.

Add a little bit of water to ease blending. 
Try not to add too much water or the juice will be diluted.
Blend for 2 - 3 minutes until you get a smoothie-like consistency.

At this point, you get a green smoothie and you can even drink it as it is! 
But I prefer it in juice form just cause it's easier to drink.
So, pass it through a sieve..

Green Juice Recipe
And you'll end up with the pupl, which is all the fibres from the vegetables

Green Juice Recipe
Usually, people throw these out but there are lots of good nutrients and vitamins in them as well.
There are loads of recipes online showing you how you can use the vegetable fibres.

I've tried one of them, and threw the vegetable fibre into some pancake batter.
You end up with green pancakes, but it tasted great.
It was hard to believe that the pancakes were actually healthy!

Green Juice Recipe
 After passing all the green "smoothie" through the sieve, you'll end up with GREEN JUICE.
There you have it!
Pretty simple and a great, easy way to start a healthy lifestyle.

Just a tip, since this green juice is fresh, you should store it in the fridge and for no longer than 2 - 3 days.
By the 3rd day, you'll notice the juice isn't a vibrant green anymore but has oxidised slightly into a green-ish brown.
Also, it is advised to store fresh juice in glass bottles as there are no chemicals in glass bottles.

Green Juice Recipe
I use my VOSS water bottles to store my green juice and its perfect, because VOSS bottles look so simple and cute!
In case you were wondering why I still had leftover Kale, that's because I saved some for my bunnies ;)

  4. Just wondering.. How did the green pancakes look? LOL! One reason I don't like juicing is because I don't like removing and throwing away the fibre. Making pancakes seems interesting!

  20. I love Kale juice and do juicing often. But when I add too much Kale to apple ratio, then it gets too bitter for me. But all is good and I love juicing! xx
