Two Glasses of Beet Juice from AboveMatthew Kenney in his book, Everyday Raw writes of his Sweet Green Juice: “Green juice is simply one of the finest things you can offer your body.”  It really feels that way when you drink it – and for that matter – when you drink any other fresh fruit and vegetable juice.  They just taste healthy!  Some of them even give you a natural boost or buzz.  They’re great for starting the day or for a mid-afternoon refresher.  I’ve picked three of my favorites to share here.

Green Juice in Glass

The mint in our garden took a beating this summer, but came back with a vengeance this fall.  A couple of handfuls of it went in to making this bright-flavored green juice.  I love the peppery heat of the fresh ginger.

Sweet Green Juice
Serves 2

2 cucumbers
2 carrots
2 apples (I quarter and core first)
1/2 cup parsley
1/2 cup mint
2 stalks celery
1 inch piece of ginger
1 lemon, peeled

Run all of the ingredients through a juicer and serve immediately.

Green Juice Ingredients

The beet-apple-celery combo is a classic, though I’d never tried it until my sister suggested it.  I’m not a big beet fan and at first was reluctant to even try a juice that included beets, but it’s fantastic.  The vibrant purple-red color is simply beautiful.

Serves 2

2 large beets, quartered
3 apples, quartered and cored (I used 2 Fujis and 1 Gala)
2 stalks celery
1 lime, peeled
4 stalks kale

Place all ingredients in a juicer.

This bright flavors of this grapefruit-based juice will definitely wake you up, get you focused and clear your head – and probably your sinuses.

    I’m shopping for a juicer…what do you recommend?

    • I’m in the market, too – but here’s the one I have now: It works really pretty well for the price.

      I’m looking at getting either a Vita-mix 1321 or an Omega juicer – not sure which one yet. They offer a big range (decent prices, too).

      Let me know what you decide!

    Will do, thanks for the info. :-)

    The Omega is the one we’re looking at right now. The Hurom is almost the same style, but doesn’t have a decent warranty – the Omega has a 5+ warranty. I like our Breville, but it throws too much good fruit into the pulp bin.
