Kale Juice Recipe (Juicer or Blender)

Here is the best Kale Juice recipe that I’ve ever made. It is slightly sweet and fresh tasting, with some brightness from lemon and ginger. Make this healthy juicing recipe today!

  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 2 1x


  • 1 bunch kale (curly or lacinato)
  • 1 lemon, peeled
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 green apple
  • 1 1-inch piece of fresh ginger


  1. Wash and pat dry your kale leaves.
  2. Cut the cucumber and apple into pieces small enough to fit through your juicer’s feeding tube.
  3. Then, turn on your juicer. Feed the ingredients into the juicer, including the kale leaves and stems. Alternate hard and soft ingredients to help the juicer run the most efficiently.
  4. Turn off the juicer and serve your juice immediately.


  1. If you don’t have a juicer, you can use a Vitamix to make the juice. Combine the ingredients with a little water in the base of a blender. Blend on high and then strain the juicer through a nut milk bag.
  2. Green juice is best served immediately. But, you can always store any leftover juice in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 days. Shake the container before drinking.
  3. You can use green or red apples for this recipe.
  4. You can use any type of cucumber for this recipe including English cucumbers or Persian cucumbers. I do not peel them first.
