Healthy green juice

    10 min

    A great healthy drink made with a juicer. Perfect for detoxing after the Christmas holidays or whenever you have overdone it. Adjust fruit and veggie amounts to suit your personal taste. More apple equals a sweeter drink. Store any extra in the fridge for up to one day. Shake before drinking.

    This is the Mean Green recipe made famous in the movie "Fat. Sick and Nearly Dead". It's one of the most used green juice recipes out there and there's a good reason. The flavor is slightly sweet (apples) and a bit spicy (ginger). It's really easy to digest and very filling. The hardest part about making this juice will be cleaning your juicer. That's always a bummer.  -  10 Jan 2013  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This green juice tastes mostly of celery. After a few sips, I added a cup of grapes to tone down the celery and sweeten a little more. Very good. Thanks for sharing.  -  30 Jan 2013  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is a great tasting juice! The ginger, lemon, and apples really blend the kale in well. I used 1/2 a lemon and 2 full leaves of kale for my first try  -  28 Jan 2013  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
