Vegetables are great for supporting the body’s natural detoxification process. Even though juicing removes the beneficial fiber, it’s a great way to get a lot of micronutrients in at one sitting. 

There is even research showing that vegetable and fruit juices can help prevent heart disease due to their high content of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals.

Why You Need This Recipe

  • Juicing at home will save you lots of money over the long-run, especially if you drink green juices regularly. Once you invest in a vegetable juicer, you can make as many as you like. I’ve had mine for over 10 years now! See my list of the best juicers.
  • This particular combination of vegetables in this recipe are designed for optimal antioxidant levels and taste. Flat-leaf parsley, kale or spinach, celery, and cucumber are a killer combination. Some might even call this a “mean green” juice recipe.
  • Missing any ingredient? This recipe is very forgiving. You can add more of one and leave out another. Just try to get a nice combination of soft and hard vegetables to help your juicer run efficiently

Key Ingredients

Celery is one of the most popular ingredients for juice these days. In fact, my Celery Juice recipe is one of the top 3 recipes on my site! If you hate the flavor of celery, just leave it out. But, it’s nice to at least include a few stalks.

Cucumber is a wonderful vegetable for juicing because it contains so much water. I recommend using an English cucumber.

Flat-leaf parsley is used around the world for its medicinal properties. Try not to skip this ingredient if you can. You may also like my Parsley Juice recipe!

Kale or spinach adds even more nutrition and body to this delicious vegetable juice recipe.

Green or red apple adds just a touch of sweetness and helps make the green juice enjoyable.

Fresh lemon adds brightness.

Recipe Steps

Step One

Once you start juicing at home, you’ll realize that the most time-consuming part of the process is prepping the vegetables. It can take up to 30 minutes to wash and cut the vegetables to be ready to juice.

I try to view washing and cutting vegetables as a meditative process. Or, I throw on my headphones and listen to a great podcast while getting them ready (see my list of the best health podcasts for women).

Step Two

Now it’s time to get juicing! Turn on your juicer and feed the vegetable pieces into the feeding tube. Alternate hard and soft pieces to help your juicer run the most efficiently.

Step Three

Serve your juice! Some people like to drink their vegetable juice on an empty stomach (with the idea being that you can best absorb the nutrients that way), and some people like to serve it with a meal. Either way, it’s up to you.

Recipes Tips & Substitutions

  • You can prep your vegetables for juicing up to 2 days ahead of time. Store your washed and cut vegetables in a covered container in the refrigerator until you’re ready to make the juice.
  • Once you have juiced your vegetables, you can store the homemade vegetable juice in a covered jar or pitcher up to 4 days in the refrigerator. But, please note that homemade vegetable juices are best consumed immediately for the most vitamin content, especially vitamin C!
  • You can use other vegetables in this recipe depending on what you have or what is in season. Try fennel, cilantro, Persian cucumbers, pears, limes, bell peppers, tomatoes, Swiss chard, collard greens, or broccoli.
  • Don’t have a juicer? Try my method for making green juice in a blender. And, don’t miss my list of the best juicer blenders.
