Green Vegetable Juice you’ll actually want to drink! Sweetened with apples, this green juice is very mild and a great place to start if you are just getting in to juicing.
One of my new year resolutions is to juice more. I tend to juice all the time in the summer when I can simply walk out to my garden, grab a bunch of vegetables and juice all-the-things.
It’s harder in the winter because I need to make sure I’m all stocked up from the grocery store.
I tend to use all the veggies I buy for food, not drinks. But, I love juice and it’s incredibly healthy, so I’m making it a point to drink up!
This Green Vegetable Juice with Apple is a great mild combo that everyone will love…even kids!
I’ve had several readers message me about juicing – Do I juice? What recipes are my favorite? Can I recommend a juicer. Etc. These messages are great reminders that I want to juice more often and finally put up some juice recipes on the blog!
This green juice is one of my favorites. The apples help sweeten it up so it doesn’t taste like you are drinking salad.
The parsley really helps to liven it up, too, as it lends a nice light citrusy flavor. If you think you don’t or won’t like green vegetable juice, give this one a try!
I use this Breville Juice Fountain. It’s super quick and easy, the pulp comes out bone dry and clean up is a snap!
Just make sure to wash everything right away. If you let it sit, it will be harder to clean.
Juice vs. smoothies
So, is juice better than smoothies? I guess that depends on who you ask.
Personally, I don’t feel one is better than the other, they are just different, and there is room for both in a healthy diet.
All of the fiber is left out of juice, so the nutrients are absorbed right into your cells and bloodstream quickly. Because you want the benefits of these quick nutrients, juice is best on an empty stomach. It also means green juice is the perfect afternoon pick-me-up…giving you an immediate recharge.
I certainly wouldn’t recommend juicing to be the ONLY way you consume green veggies, but it is an easy way to add a lot of variety to your diet and try new vegetables that might not seem appealing otherwise.
Be sure to use at least 3 to 4 vegetables for every fruit. The only reason the fruit should be there is to balance out the flavors, NOT to make it sweet like juice you would find from a carton.
