I drink fresh vegetable juice almost daily, but I tend to filter the juices I show here. See, I have a feeling that if I posted a juice recipe that said “juice 1 giant bunch of kale and a peeled lemon” some of you might actually drink it. And, if you aren’t a hard-core juice fanatic, you’d take one sip of that and never come back here.
This juice gets some tart-sweetness from green apples, which have less sugar than other apple varieties, but still help to liven up the juice a bit. I also added in some cucumber because it is very hydrating and I love cucumber juice for its mellow taste. Combine these goodies with some celery, ginger, a peeled lemon, and a bit of kale and you have yourself a powerful, nutrient-packed green juice that tastes like a healthy version of lemonade. I’ve found that the tartness from lemons really help cut the “green” taste from a lot of juices so this is a great juice to try if you are nervous about green vegetables juices. And if you are a true juice beginner, you can sub out the green apples for red to make the juice a bit sweeter.
