Easy 4-ingredient kale juice recipe that doesn’t taste at all like lawn clippings! Refreshing, hydrating and simply delicious, this green juice is more invigorating than coffee!
Health in a glass my friends, that’s what this apple, carrot celery and kale juice represents.
Now, I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with fresh juices.
The love part comes in when drinking the juice. Ah – now that’s good stuff.
The hate part comes in when I have to clean the juicer.
Geez, can it be any harder? Even the ‘easy-to-clean’ juicers still require quite a bit of work, separating all the parts and then cleaning them all with the little toothbrush cleaner thingie. It’s not my favorite thing to do in the world.
But drinking the juice? Oh – love love love.
So because of this love/hate thing, I prefer to make a nice big juice. If I’m going to have to do all that work for it, I better make it worthwhile.
So this juice is a big juice. It makes about a liter of juice. I’m going to say it serves 2 though, because why not drink a great big juice.
You probably don’t juice everyday (I definitely don’t), so when I do I want to make it count!
Get in all that good stuff, all those vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients in a nice BIG glass of green juice.
What you’ll like about this green juice is that it doesn’t taste like kale. Or you know, lawn clippings.
The carrot and apple flavors are strong enough to overpower that lawn clippings thing and the celery adds a delicious saltiness.
It’s actually so good it’s worth dusting off your juicer (and cleaning it afterwards) to drink this juice.
And really, it feels so good, you actually FEEL as if your cells are jumping up and doing a happy jive as this juice starts hitting your system.
What You’ll Need To Make This Juice:
- Kale – can really be any kind of kale.
- Green apples – we love Granny Smith apples because they are firm and sweet and a tiny bit tart. They work really well in this green juice.
