My 6 Favorite Green Breakfast Juice Recipe
#1. Spinach, Carrot and Apple Juice
Can you drink spinach juice? If you cannot, here is the wonderful recipe, including spinach, but tastes really delicious.
As you may know, carrot and apple give you the sweet and savory taste, which can hide the flavor of spinach. However, after juicing, you will have a little bit of pulp that needs to be strained and separated from the juice. Thus, this work takes much time to do, but it's even less healthy when making juice this way. Why?
The pulp above contains a bit of nutrition and much fiber. If you throw it, you mean throwing all the essential fiber in the vegetables and fruit.
Things need to be prepared: 5 spinach leaves, one apple, one carrot, cinnamon (if you’d like).
First, you need to wash these vegetables with clean water and let it dry for a few minutes. Then, crush the spinach leaves, carrot, and apple into pieces and put all into the juicer. Add some more water, start the machine and wait until the mix is soft and juicy. Finally, strain the juice for a smooth drink and add some cinnamon for flavoring.
#2. Cucumber and Kiwi juice
Honestly, this is my favorite one, and I bet you will like it for the first time trying.
This juice has the savory smell of cucumber and sweetness, the sourness of kiwi. However, you can also taste chilly and salty from the crushed ginger, which makes this mix unique and special.
Here are what you will need: 4 kiwis, two cucumbers, half of the ginger, sprouts.
As usual, peel cut kiwi and cucumbers into pieces after washing the fruit with clean water. Then, blend the ice and water before putting those fruits into the machine. Keep blending for 1 minute with high speed, then pour the mix into a glass and decorate with sprouts.
Though it’s much like a smoothie if you put more ice, this is still a delicious green juice.
#3. Kale and Celery Juice
If you’d like a pure green breakfast juice, this mix is a great choice: celery, kale, cucumber, and parsley.
Well, when trying this juice purely, I felt a bit difficult to drink, and I guess you will feel it, too. Thus, I suggest adding some slices of pineapple for sweet flavor, which makes it easy to taste.
Here are what you will need: 1 celery stalk, five kale leaves, one cucumber, two sprigs of parsley, and a few pieces of pineapple. Chop the vegetables roughly into pieces as small as you can for easy juicing. When finishing, strain the juice from the pulp, or you can serve instantly for a good fiber supplement.
#4. Cabbage, cucumber and mango juice
Honestly, this is the easiest and favorite mix for those who like a sweet drink. Mango is an essential supplement for the mix as it sweetens the flavor, while cucumber smells delicious and savory. Let’s see what we have.
1/4 cabbage, three sprigs of parsley, two spinach leaves, one cucumber, and one mango. Sound simple, doesn’t it? Yes, it does. As these vegetables have much water, you only need a bit of clean water when juicing the mix. But before juicing, you need to slice the ingredients roughly into small pieces.
We suggest you should drink all the pulp as this contains much fiber, which is the most essential part of fruit and vegetables.
#5. Cabbage and Lemon Juice
Cabbage is now not a difficult thing to eat or drink as it combines with lemon. This mix doesn’t require many ingredients, either. What do you need?
Simple drink as cabbage and lemon juice
One cabbage, a handful of mint leaves, one tablespoon honey, a squeeze of lemon. That’s all.
How to do with this mix?
You will mostly deal with the cabbage as this is the primary ingredient. First, peel the cabbage gently to get leaves. Then, wash them with clean water and let them dry. Also, note to take only green leaves and cut out brown spots on them.
Toss enough amount of leaves into a blender, add some more water for smooth blending. Blend a few more minutes before pouring into a glass. You should strain and remove the pulpy part, as this is hard to serve. Then, add mint leaves, honey, and lemon for a sweet flavor.
#6. Amla Juice
So simple yet effective! The amla juice gives you many health benefits that you may not know: improving eyesight, burning fat, providing nutrition for hair, etc.
Amla benefits are great
It doesn’t take much time to prepare the amla juice. First, boil the amla, peel, and remove seeds as we only use the flesh. You will need more ingredients to add in: a squeeze of lime, a sprig of coriander.
Finally, juice the mix with a little water, then strain and serve instantly. It’s also better to serve chilled.
