1 cup of spinach
2 stalks of celery including leaves
Core the apple, and juice 1/2 the apple, carrot, celery, cucumber and spinach. Serve immediately.
1 cup of parsley
3 celery stalks
Core the apple and split in half (you could use a whole one, if you'd like). Juice the carrots, apple, celery and parsley. Drink immediately.
This is a great energizer. Parsley (even just a little) in anything gives you a kick!
1 head romaine lettuce or celery
5-6 leaves of kale (or spinach, dandelion, or parsley)
1-2 apples or pears
1 lemon, peel ok
Clean the lettuce and cut so it's manageable to juice. Cut the lemon in half. Juice hte lettuce (or celery), apples, kale, and lemon. Serve immediately.
The apples and pears are added to make it more palatable.
1/4 a small Honeydew melon
Small bunch of seedless white grapes
2 kiwi fruits (without skin)
Large handful of spinach
Small sprig of mint
Cut a cucumber in half. Cut the honeydew, and remove the rind as it's not good for juicers. Juice the cucumber, honeydew, grapes, kiwi, spinach, lemon and mint. Drink immediately.
A handful of Kale
Remove carrots tops, if necessary. Juice the carrots with the kale and serve.
A handful of Spinach
1 3-inch wedge of Cabbage
Juice the carrots, spinach and cabbage together as usual. Serve.
1 good bunch of Kale
4 celery stalks
1/2 lemon (rind on ok)
one small knob (about ½ inch or less) of ginger root
2 granny smith apples (gala is good too)
Cut the cucumber into spears. Cut a lemon in half and core the apples. Juice the cucumber, kale, celery, lemon, ginger and apples. Serve immediately. This will make about 2 glasses of mean green juice. I believe this recipe is what Joe Cross used in his movie and called "mean green juice."
