If you aren’t a fan of eating salads—or need your nutrients to go—green juices are a great way to consume a salad in a glass.  Here’s a delicious recipe from our friends at Breville!

Kale

A superfood rich in essential vitamins and minerals, kale is especially high in calcium, potassium, and iron.

Cilantro

This flavorful herb is rich in vitamins, minerals, and chlorophyll.

Spinach

A powerhouse of vitamins, spinach contains twice as much iron as other greens.

Cucumbers

Cucumbers are extremely high in water content, imparting a refreshing, cooling . Unless buying organic, remove the skin before juicing.

Carrots

One of the highest sources of beta carotene, carrots add sweetness to balance bitter-tasting juices.

Green Apples

Adding a little tartness to your juice, many of the nutritional benefits of green apples are concentrated in the skin and outer layers.  Aim to buy organic green apples so they can be juiced whole.

Ingredients

  • 3 leaves kale
  • 1 bunch cilantro
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 1 large cucumber
  • 1 large carrot
  • 1 green apple

Preparation

  1. Juice, sip, enjoy!
