Equipment

  • small handheld juicer
  • Vitamix high-speed blender
  • Fine mesh strainer or nut milk bags
  • glass measuring cups
  • glass (8-ounce) juice containers

Ingredients

  • 1 green apple cored and chopped
  • 1 inch chunk of fresh ginger peeled
  • 1/2 of a lemon
  • 2 large celery stalks chopped
  • 2 baby cucumbers
  • 2-3 cups kale remove stem before chopping
  • 2 1/2 cups filtered water

Instructions

  • Place the celery, cucumber, apple, and ginger into the Vitamix. 
  •  Loosely pack in the kale then squirt the lemon juice in with the fruits and vegetables.
  • Pour in the filtered water.
  • Cover and blend on high for 1 minute or until all ingredients are blended and smooth.
  • Place a fine mesh strainer over a 4-cup glass measuring cup and pour the juice, pushing the pulp into the strainer. You want to squeeze out as much liquid as possible. I use a spoon to push the pulp into the strainer. Dump the leftover pulp into a bowl and then continue with the rest of the juice. 
  • When the juice fills the measuring cup, pour the juice into glass mason jars or individual glass containers.
  • Continue until you have strained all of the juice. If you want to make more juice, then repeat the process.

Notes

Serving size is 1 (8-ounce) bottle of juice.
Storage tips
This green juice recipe will last up to 7 days in the refrigerator. I recommend, for best results, to store in an airtight glass container.
Freeze in ice cube trays if you're not going to drink the juice right away. To thaw, place the cubes into a glass container and let them sit overnight in the refrigerator. In the morning, give it a couple of shakes and drink.
Freeze the green juice ingredients into kits. Prep the ingredients and then place everything into a plastic or reusable bag and freeze. To make the juice, place the frozen ingredients in the Vitamix, add water, and blender. Continue with the rest of the recipe.
