Mean Green Monster Juice

Detox juice

Bella juicer

I always feel super healthy when drinking green juices... and I should! Kale is an excellent source of vitamins, antioxidants, as well as fiber and sulfur, both of which are great for detoxifying; Kiwi is a superfood, abundant in Vitamin C, which is especially beneficial for youthful looking skin; and parsley, which is an herb chock full of vitamins, not just a pretty garnish. Good stuff!

I'll be honest though, I absolutely despise the taste of celery so despite it's health benefits, I leave it out of my juices, but I want you to have the full benefits so I left it in the recipe. You're welcome :P

Mean Green Monster Juice
Ingredients:
1 bunch Kale, rib removed
1/2 bag Spinach
2 Kiwis
2 Green Apples, cut and cored
1 bunch Parsley
2- 4 Celery Stalks 
Juice from half a lemon

Cut veggies and fruits as required for juicer. Juice all together, adding the juice of half a lemon. With adding 1 cup water, makes approximately 36 ounces. Store up to 3-4 days in lidded container in refrigerator.

Make it a smoothie! Add 1 banana, 1-2 tablespoons of chia and/or flax seeds, and about 1/3 cup of Greek yogurt to 1 - 1 1/2 cups of juice. Blend with ice.

Enjoy!

  1. Okay... it makes me so happy to hear that there is another person out there who hates celery as much as I do! I actually love healthy stuff (including fruits and veggies) so I don't why I don't like it!

  2. I feel the same way about celery!! I just started juicing pretty recently, and my skin is clearer, my hair is shinier, my mood is up...total believer! My husband made a juice the other day with only one celery stalk and I walked in and asked what smelled so bad. When he told me he put a little bit of celery in it, I gave him the dirtiest look! HA...how could he? Really...;)

  3. YUM! That looks delicious! I never really liked celery in my juices either. I also never liked cleaning my juicer either haha. I swear that I'd juice more if it wasn't such a pain to clean. But I am craving juice now... maybe I'll break out my juicer ;)
