About This Recipe

You can make this green juice easily  in the blender and it’s cheaper than vegetable juice you’ll find at a juice bar. It’s packed with anti-inflammatory ingredients, it’s slightly sweet and very delicious! 

There’s a great balance of sweetness from the apple and pineapple and zing from the ginger. You’ll taste the celery and cucumber a bit, which gives it an additional fresh flavor to go with the fresh mint.

I took a notes out of Serious Eat’s tips on how to make homemade juice, focusing on mixing high-yield ingredients with high-potency ingredients. It’s also a combination of fruits and vegggies I’d actually enjoy together! 

Overall, this green juice is really balanced and tastes really yummy on top of being so good for our bodies. It’s my favorite green juice recipe!

Green Juice Health Benefits and Why I Love It

Anything that helps you get more vegetables into your diet regularly is going to help your overall health and a good idea to add to your routine. Although some argue you’re missing out on some of the fiber from the pulp, the benefits of green juice including vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, are better than not having them at all.

  • It’s a great way to add whole vegetables, essential vitamins and nutrients into your diet.
  • Supports your immune system (thanks to vitamin c!) and digestive system (fiber!).
  • Balance blood sugar first thing in the morning (helps weight loss!).
  • Packed with a powerful antioxidant blend.
  • Easy green juice recipe (10 minutes).
  • Make it in the blender or with a juicer.
  • It’s a great addition to any healthy diet and can support several medical conditions (like PCOS).

If you’re new to juicing then this green juice recipe is for you! You don’t need a fancy juicer. All you need is a blender and a Rawsome Creations Nut Milk Bag to get the benefits of juicing at home.

Here are the fresh ingredients in this simple green juice recipe. You can find all of these raw vegetables and fruits in the product section of the grocery store. Skip down to the printable recipe card below for the full recipe and exact measurements.

  • Kale: we used organic kale, but any dark leafy greens are great options.
  • Green Apple: the natural sugars in a granny smith apple balance out the recipe
  • Pineapple: this is optional if you want less sugar, but adding fresh fruit juices, especially with kale, adds so much flavor.
  • Herbs: Parsley, mint, and cilantro
  • Cucumber: we always have English cucumbers on hand (as a snack and to make lemon cucumber water).
  • Celery: make sure to wash it first!
  • Ginger: I love ginger so much because of it’s flavor and anti-inflammatory benefits. Use less for a more mild flavor.
  • Lemon Juice: squeeze fresh juice from a lemon for some acid to balance everything out.

Success tip: When you head to the grocery store make sure you pick up all the ingredients for this healthy green juice recipe. As a general rule, I try to get as much organic produce (fruits and veggies) as I can to get the very best green juice recipe I can.

How to Make Green Juice

Here are the simple steps, with images, for this delicious green juice recipe. Skip down to the recipe card below for the full printable recipe.

1. Add to the Blender

Peel the fresh fruit and roughly chop the vegetables so they fit in the blender. I love using a high-speed blender like a Vitamix.

​2. Blend on High

​Blend everything on high for for a few minutes until the juice turns a deep green color and the majority of the fresh fruits and veggies are visibly broken up.

​3. Strain the Juice

Cover a large bowl or measuring cup with a nut milk bag and strain the juice through it, squeezing tightly to get as much juice as possible.

4. Serve or Store

Serve the juice right away or store it in glass jars for up to 3 days. The juice will separate in the fridge so shake well first!

Make it with a Juicer

Follow the same recipe, just omit the water and cut your fruits and veggies a little smaller. Most juicers allow you to leave the skin on fruits and veggies, so that’s a personal preference. Run them through the juicer, using the tampeer as needed!

If you plan to fresh green juice frequently (or any juice), investing in a masticating is worth it because they extract the most fiber and reduce waste. Although centrifugal juicers is a great option too. You can learn the difference between each kind of juicer to decide which is best for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is it ok to drink green juice every day?

It’s filled with only natural ingredients and tons of veggies so it’s actually recommended to drink green juice every day, especially if you don’t feel like you’re getting enough nutrients from your diet.

What not to put in green juice?

Avoid putting ingredients with little to no juice in a green juice like avocados, berries and bananas. Although certain fruits and veggies can be juiced, it’s important to take stock of your body and what food works for you. For example, be mindful of the amount of sugar in fruits like pears and pineapple if you’re trying to balance blood sugar. If you’re sensitive to gut issues, be mindful of juicing cruciferous vegetables like broccoli.

Can I use a blender to juice vegetables?

You don’t need a juicer to juice vegetables, you can use a blender.  They key to making this green juice recipe in the blender is having a quality nut milk bag (I like the Rawsome Creations Nut Milk Bag).

What to Do with Leftover Pulp

After you strain the juice through the nut milk bag, you’re left with the pulp from the vegetables. I tend to compost mine, but you can use it for other recipes if you don’t want to toss it. Here are 20 unique uses for leftover juice pulp.

Servings: 2 drinks


  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 cup ice
  • 2 cups kale or spinach
  • 1 green apple cored and cut into chunks
  • 1 cup pineapple fresh or canned with no sugar added
  • 1/2 cup parsley leaves
  • 1 tablespoon fresh mint
  • 1 medium cucumber quartered
  • 2 celery stalks roughly chopped
  • 1 inch piece of ginger peeled
  • Juice from 1 lemon


  • Wash all vegetables and fruits well. Add water to a high-speed blender then add the rest of the ingredients. Blend on the highest setting for at least one minute, until completely combined and is similar to a smoothie consistency.
  • To separate the juice from the pulp, place a nut milk bag or fine mesh seive over a large glass measuring bowl (I use an 8 cup glass measuring bowl). Pour the juice mixture into the bowl through the nut milk bag, squeezing the mixture through the bag so all of the liquid and pulp is separated. Reserve the pulp to put in muffins or crackers.
  • Drink immediately or place in a sealed glass jar in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Shake well before drinking. This recipe doubles well.
