I don’t own a juicer, but that doesn’t mean I can’t have fresh green juice anytime I want! Making green juice in a blender is really easy (it just requires an extra step – straining through a nut-milk or jam making bag to separate the pulp from the liquid). I make a batch of this juice on the weekend; it’ll keep in the fridge for a few days. When I’m feeling fancy, I’ll mix the juice with some carbonated water.
- 2 handfuls of greens (kale, spinach, etc., or a mixture)
- 1 apple, cored and cut into quarters (I like to use granny smith)
- 1 piece of ginger (about an inch or so)
- Fresh parsley (rip a small small amount)
- 2 celery stalks, cut into thirds
- 1 small cucumber (mini or Persian), cut into smaller pieces
- 1 lime, peeled
- 4 cups filtered water
Place all ingredients into a blender and mix until smooth and there are no large pieces left. Strain the juice through a nut-milk bag. Store the juice in the fridge for a few days.
**I know that the leftover pulp can be used in smoothies, breads, cookies, etc. but I have not tried any myself. Let me know if you do!
