40 Amazing Green Juice RecipesYour definitive guide to green juicing

Get juiced

Want to do your body some real good? Green juices are liquid gold for boosts of energy, nutrients, and restoration. The benefits are so profound, in fact, that you might just get addicted to juicing. (There’s no use trying to hide your habit—your luminous skin will give you away.)

If you’re hesitant about downing glasses of green, know that you’re not alone: A survey from Jamba Juice found that 28% of people think green juice is “scary” looking. But have no fear! These tried-and-true green juice recipes are so scrumptious, they’ll keep you coming back for more—and you’ll catch that green juice glow in no time.

 

Cilantro Apple Green Juice

This green monster is loaded with calcium, iron, and vitamin K (thanks to the kale). The puckery citrus adds vitamin C, too. Don’t forget cilantro, whose leaves are antibacterial and anti-inflammatory.

SERVINGS: 1

2 green apples
2 stalks celery
2 lg kale leaves
1 med cucumber
¼ c fresh cilantro
½ lemon, peeled

PRESS all ingredients through a juicer in batches. Stir and serve immediately.

Cucumber Basil Juice

Here’s a little-known factoid: The bright green leaves of basil are mildly sedative. Basil has long been used as a remedy for indigestion, and the leaves are packed with anti-inflammatory oils that can help relieve pain from arthritis and irritable bowel syndrome.

Add in the hydrating power of cucumbers—they’re 95% water!—and you might just decide you don’t need that ibuprofen after all.

SERVINGS: 1

1 c fresh basil leaves
1 lg cucumber
1 lime, peeled
1 green apple

PRESS all ingredients through a juicer in batches. Stir and serve immediately.

NUTRITION (per serving): 93 cal, 2 g pro, 30 g carb, 0.5 g fiber, 17 g sugars, 0.5 g fat, 0 g sat fat, 7 mg sodium

Cucumber Parsley Juice

This green juice is a detox powerhouse. Gut-friendly pear fiber goes great with spinach, which helps strengthen bones and protects the brain from age-related cognitive decline.

Looking for more immediate benefits? Gulp one of these for the perfect antidote to morning breath, thanks to parsley and calming mint. And if you’re feeling a little puffy, toss in a cuke. Cucumbers provide electrolytes to hydrate your cells and lower water retention.

SERVINGS: 1

1 lg cucumber
1 med pear
¼ c fresh mint
1 c fresh parsley
1 lemon, peeled
2 c baby spinach

PRESS all ingredients through a juicer in batches. Stir and serve immediately.

Fennel Apple Juice

Fresh fennel bulbs are rich in antioxidants that crush inflammation. They’re also a surprisingly good source of fiber and folate, and the high potassium means that fennel is a diuretic, helping to ease fluid retention. Fennel’s soothing sister, dill, aids digestion.

SERVINGS: 1

2 med fennel bulbs
1 c Earthbound Farm Organic Zen Blend or baby spinach
¼ c fresh dill
2 green apples
1 lg cucumber
½ lemon, peeled

PRESS all ingredients through a juicer in batches. Stir and serve immediately.

Orange Spinach Juice

Orange goes great with green. The sweet spheres aren’t just delicious—they’re one of the few fruits low on the glycemic index, so oranges are easy on your blood sugar. If you can find them, try using blood oranges in this juicy juice; they contain even higher levels of anthocyanins, which are linked to cancer prevention.

SERVINGS: 1

1½ c fresh baby spinach or Earthbound Farm Organic Power Blend
1 green apple
2 lemons, peeled
1 lime, peeled
2 med oranges, peeled
1 celery stalk
½-inch fresh ginger

PRESS all ingredients through a juicer in batches. Stir and serve immediately.

Pineapple Parsley Juice

You know those moments when you eat so much, you swear off food forever? Yup, there’s a juice for that.

The key to feeling better fast is digestion-friendly ingredients. Lean, green arugula gives a peppery kick to your system, and pineapples are known for their de-bloating effects. Fresh parsley and cucumber help lighten you up by absorbing excess fluids in the body.

SERVINGS: 1

1 lg cucumber
1 c diced fresh pineapple
1 c arugula
1 med grapefruit
2 lg lemons, peeled
½-inch fresh ginger
⅓ c fresh parsley
1 green apple

PRESS all ingredients through a juicer in batches. Stir and serve immediately.

Romaine Ginger Juice

This juice packs four shades of green, but the star is dandelion. Dandelion is one of the most recommended herbs to help with liver detoxification, and it’s a strong source of inulin, a soluble fiber known to have a positive effect on blood sugar levels. The leaves of this pretty flower are rich sources of beta carotene and vitamin A, so get juicing. You can use leftover dandelion root to make a liver-friendly detoxifying tea.

SERVINGS: 1

1 head romaine lettuce
2 stalks celery
1 bunch Rainbow Swiss chard
2 Fuji apples
½ lemon, peeled
½-inch fresh ginger
1 c dandelion greens

PRESS all ingredients through a juicer in batches. Stir and serve immediately.

NUTRITION (per serving): 183 cal, 8 g pro, 59 g carb, 3 g fiber, 32 g sugars, 2 g fat, 0 g sat fat, 167 mg sodium

Swiss Chard Ginger Juice

Detoxing, anyone? Toss in Swiss chard, chock full of B vitamins and minerals to promote healthy hair and eyes. Ginger gives your digestion a kick-start, and apples are a rich source of the bioflavonoid quercetin, nature’s antihistamine.

Add in parsley for even more of a wake-up call. If you’ve ever chewed on a sprig, you know it’s the best natural breath freshener. But it’ll also freshen your whole system: Parsley is known primarily for its detoxification and deodorizing properties.

SERVINGS: 1

1 green apple
4 leaves romaine lettuce
½-inch piece fresh ginger
1 lemon, peeled
1 bunch Swiss chard
1 c fresh parsley
1 med carrot

PRESS all ingredients through a juicer in batches. Stir and serve immediately.

NUTRITION (per serving): 125 cal, 6 g pro, 38 g carb, 1.5 g fiber, 19 g sugars, 1.5 g fat, 0 g sat fat, 152 mg sodium

Swiss Chard Lemonade

This is no ordinary lemonade. It’s turbo-charged with vitamin C, and there’s no refined sugar in sight: just a ripe pear, green apples, and a smidge of raw honey. Toss in a cucumber for a refreshing touch.

SERVINGS: 1

1 bunch Swiss chard
1 med pear
2 lg lemons, peeled
1 med cucumber
2 green apples
1 tsp raw, unfiltered honey

PRESS all ingredients through a juicer in batches. Stir and serve immediately.

Watercress, Beet, and Mint Juice

Feeling bloated? Drink this ruby-green juice. Betaine, the compound that gives beets their vivid color, is so potent that it can help lower blood pressure. And fresh mint quells lingering tummy bubbles.

But the bloat-busting secret weapon is daikon radish, which looks like a jumbo white carrot and fights free radicals like a champ. It’s a diuretic that helps kidneys release excess water, so it’ll help you deflate fast.

SERVINGS: 1

2 lg carrots
1 med beet, washed and scrubbed
1 bunch fresh watercress leaves
½ med daikon radish
⅓ c fresh mint

PRESS all ingredients through a juicer in batches. Stir and serve immediately.
