Ultimate Green Juice Recipe

Green juice recipe

Most of us seek to be healthier, and we know that diet plays a major role is accomplishing that vital goal, right? Well, the classic green juice drink has been around for decades as one step in the healthy direction, for example as a morning drink to get your day started right.

These days, green juice is more popular than ever with how much cheaper juicers are and with super green powders one of the most sought-after supplements.

We’ve decided to do you one better, creating the Ultimate Green Juice, with the best ingredients for a green juice, and add our own super greens powder to further amplify the nutrient value of this drink. Talk about firing up your body!

What Is Green Juice?

A major wellness trend, green juice is often a blend of mostly green veggies that are juiced together into a healthy drink. Sometimes a fruit juice is added, but that tends to add more sugar than most green juice aficionados desire — so a better option is a whole fruit, such as a green apple, pear or lime.

What kind of green vegetables are used in a classic green juice? Swiss chard, kale, spinach, cucumber, celery and parsley are just a few popular options.

Typically a quality juicer is used in making green juice and other juicing recipes, but you can also use a high-speed blender and then strain the pulp through a mesh sieve (twice to get all the juice out). 

The green juice liquid is loaded with nutrients, including vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals found in the veggies and fruit. Green juice helps support your immune system, healthy inflammation levels, weight management and more.

Consider drinking in the morning, for an empty stomach can lead to better nutrient absorption.

How does green juice compare to a green smoothie? Well, studies indicate that green juice may contain more vitamin C, alpha-carotene, beta-carotene and potassium than a green smoothie, in part because it uses so many more vegetables in the recipe.
