Just like every other LA health nut I too jumped on board the “juicing” trend.  At first glance the green gunk looks unappealing and far from thirst quenching. I tried a few pre-bottled juices and non of them did the trick. But, then though to  myself … I just haven’t had the right one! Eventually I came across the “Greens 3” from Pressed Juice and I was surprisingly shocked by the refreshing sweet taste and kick of lemon.  On the down side I didn’t like paying an arm and a leg for a weeks worth of juice so my frugal brain figured there’s a better way. Lucky enough for me Pressed Juice keeps the ingredients on the front of the bottle. So with a little tweaking I came up my own version of green juice that you can tweak again and again and it will still be delicious. I mean so delicious my 1-year-old can’t get enough!

Here’s all you’ll need.

High Quality Juicer

Large Pitcher

  • 1 HEAD OF KALE
  • 2-3 LEMON
  • 1.5-2 INCHES OF GINGER
  • 1 HEAD OF LETTUCE
  • 4-5 GREEN APPLES (variety)
  • 1-2 STALKS OF CELERY
  • 3-4 CUCUMBER
  • 1-2 BUNCHES OF PARSLEY
  • 1 BUNCH OF SPINACH

 

My veggie and fruit count always varies due to the amount of juice I want to make that day, what’s on sale and the flavor I’m craving (if its more tart or sweet and bitter). I usually start with a base that consist of celery and cucumber since they are mainly water, then I gradually add the rest. In no particular order I just kind of mix and toss. I just leaving out the ginger and lemon. I do this because half way thru I clean out the pulp and set it aside to reuse it. I either toss it in the garden or add it to any cake, pancake or muffin batter. But, you won’t want to mix in any of the ginger or lemon pulp, it doesn’t taste so great.

I found this juicer on amazon and on sale. I don’t think its anything special all I know is it gets the job done. I’ve had it for about a year and I think it has another one to go before it dies on me. IMG_6611

I like to juice ahead because clean up can be a pain and time-consuming. I found these great mason jars at Target that are perfect for juice-on-the-go.

Hope you enjoy juicing!
