A quick and easy blender green juice without the need of a fancy juicer!

I have to admit, I’ve had a juicer for many years but rarely use it.

My high speed blender can do it all – nut milks to blending soups, making smoothies, juices and more!

The only other tool you need to make juice is a strainer, better yet a nut milk bag.

I have two nut milk bags, one is used for making homemade almond milk and other non-dairy milks and the other is for making juices!

You can use any fruits or vegetables you have on hand to make juice.

These are my go-to ingredients to create a highly nutritious and hydrating green juice.

Dark leafy green are incredibly healthy. Spinach is a crowd favorite and is great for a juice recipe.

Spinach is a source of inorganic nitrate, can lower your blood pressure and make your arteries less stiff, among other benefits.

You also get potassium from spinach, which helps keep your heart working right.

Not only are cucumber and celery water rich, which will keep you hydrated but they are also packed with nutrients.

Cucumber may lower blood sugar, balance hydration, digestive regularity and lower blood sugar levels

Celery is rich in vitamins and minerals with a low glycemic index meaning it has a slow, steady effect on your blood sugar.

You can add either green or red apples to this juice mix. A green apple will be a bit more tart and a red apple will add sweetness.

Oranges provide gut- and health-protective fiber, contain antioxidants and are high in vitamin C!

Though juices have great health benefits, it does remove all of the fiber which is also very important for your diet.

Before discarding the juice pulp, consider using it for other meals, like vegetarian burgers, salad, or baked goods.

You can even use it as a fertilizer for your plants!

 

 

Steps

1
Done

Prep The Fruits and Vegetables

Wash the apples, cucumber and celery.

No need to peel the apple, cucumber or ginger simply chop into chunks.

Peel the orange and lemon and slice the orange into 2 or 4 chunks.

Last, roughly chop the celery stalks.

2
Done

Add All Of The Ingredients To Your Blender

Start by adding the water to the blender along with the other ingredients.

Blend until well blender. Use the tamper to push the ingredients towards the blade if needed (see video).

3
Done

Strain The Juice

Get a large bowl and a nut milk bag and pour the green juice into the milk bag.

Squeeze the nut milk bag to separate the juice from the pulp.

Discard the pulp or keep for your compost, or use as fertilizer for your plants.

4
Done

Store

Quickly rinse the blender jar then pour the green juice from the bowl into the blender jar.

This will make is easier to pour the juice into your desired jug.

Store the juice in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

I do exactly the same! I gave up on my juicer years ago, so hard to clean too! Great tip about the nut milk bag, must get one, I use muslin.

Making this work for now until I commit to a juicer! In this ice storm, I’m using kiwi instead of cucumber….Great recipe template!
