They key to making this green juice recipe in the blender is the Rawsome Creations Nut Milk Bag. It’s designed with a culinary background in mind so the holes are just the right size and the seams are on the outside for easy clean up.
I also love this nut milk bag because it’s ethically produced and made by an amazing team in Bali. This bag not only helps me make healthy and delicious recipes, but it also helps everyone on the production side as well.
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.

The Best Green Juice
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 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 chopped 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 the blender jug 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 milk 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.
