Kale juice recipes make nutrient dense green drinks sure to give you sustained energy and nutrition for your days.
Kale benefits include aiding in constipation, building red blood cells, neutralizing blood sugar, easing bladder problems and relieving arthritis pain. While kale juice recipes are extremely vitamin rich, it’s especially a good source of calcium. Kale recipes are an excellent choice for helping almost any health condition.
Totally make it a point to put this green on your weekly shopping list! One thing that I love about it is that if it does happen to go bad before I can use it, it freezes quite well to be used in green smoothies later. I hardly ever have any kale that goes to waste for this reason.
Another plus- it’s a hearty green so it’s easier to feed into your juicer compared to other greens, and definitely will keep longer in the refrigerator.
Keep in mind that when juicing kale you must combine it with other juices like carrot or cucumber because it’s too strong to be juiced alone. If you stick to these kale juice recipes you’ll be just fine. Try one out and then tweak it to your liking if you want more or less juice.

Juice the carrots and kale. Drink immediately.

6 kale leaves
3 green apples, cored
1 tiny knob of ginger
Core your apples. Juice the kale, apples, lemon and ginger together. Serve.
This is a classic kale recipe that can be juiced every day. The apple, lemon and ginger not only add nutrition but make it taste like a green lemonade.
1 garlic clove, peeled
2 kale leaves
Cut the cucumber and tomato into smaller pieces for your juicer. Juice the kale, cucumber, tomato and garlic. Serve immediately.
This one is great if you need an immune system boost, but the garlic can be left out if you prefer. You could also add ¼ of a lemon to this for a more refreshing juice.
