The Ultimate Green Power Juice will quench your thirst like none other! This satisfying and delicious beverage is nice and healthy, so it’s a win-win!
The Ultimate Green Power Juice
Yes, you are right, this is not a typical Picky Palate recipe 🙂 Over the last 6 months or so, my husband and I have been doing a lot of blending (with our Blendtec) and juicing. I love drinking these in the morning for breakfast, it’s amazing how great you feel. We have a fun juice shop down the street from us called Nekter Juice Bar that we visit often. One of my favorite juices to order from them is their Toxin Flush which has all of the same ingredients as you will see below.
I do not know their exact recipe, but you know I was determined to re-create my favorite drink in the comfort of my own home so I could have it anytime I wanted.
It ends up I like my version even more. Score!
Please know, we have a very basic juicer, it is nothing fancy. I think it’s the Jack LaLanne basic model. Let’s take a look at my favorite morning juice 🙂
The ingredients for my Power Juice are apples, spinach, parsley, lemon and fresh ginger. Love!
How to Make This Power Smoothie
If you’ve never juiced before, it’s quite fun. It’s a little bit of a production with set up/clean up, but once you get the hang of it, it’s not so bad 🙂
Keep adding your ingredients to the juicer and watch the juice flow 🙂
Don’t worry, the drink does not taste like parsley or spinach. It just adds a perfect freshness not to mention it’s health benefits.
My little guy loves helping smash the fruits and veggies.
The Ultimate Green Power Juice
- 6 large Fuji or Gala apples quartered
- 4 cups baby spinach leaves
- 1 bunch of parsley
- 2 inches fresh ginger skin removed
- 1 lemon
- Turn juicer on and add half of the apples. Add spinach, parsley, ginger, and remaining apples. Squeeze lemon into juice.
you don’t need a juicer to make this. i use my Vitamix, and drink all the fiber, nothing thrown out. it takes 30 sec to clean up. Any powerfull blender will work.
Excellent combo of ingredients. That juice had to taste so-o good.
YUM! I have been juicing too and LOVE it!!! my friend has a great juice blog and one of her tips if if you juice your greens and ginger first then your fruits you will get more of the veggie juice out of the juicer. I have yet to try this with parsley but spinach and kale is super yummy too!!
I just got a new juicer recently, and I agree, very fun! This is a very refreshing juice and love the mix here!
Fresh and refreshing…What a healthy way to enjoy a combination of flavors. I would love to have this gadget too. Thanks for the post!
Where can I find the bottle you used in the photo? My kids would LOVE to have their green juice in such a fun container!
Such a fun twist to see this green juice here. So pretty too. Have a great weekend Jenny 🙂
This looks yummy! My son has recently started juicing..i’d like to try this one! 🙂
I would love to wake up everyday to this drink. Now, if only I had a juicer 😛
I just started drinking some thing like this Wednesday. It was a work in progress and I do not have a nice juicer just a blender so it is rather a thick mixture. the coworkers are giving me a lot of strange looks while I am drinking this strange green mixture, but hopefully it will be worth it at least I feel better knowing that everything in it is healthy. I have thought about getting some protein powder or something of that nature to add to it any ideas?
Looks great. I don’t have a juicer, so instead I make green smoothies. If I ever get one though, I’ll check out this recipe!
So I’ve actually been making fresh juice blends all week. I had much success earlier in the week, but these past two days have been horrible. I was trying out recipes with more greenery (kale, spinach, celery). I’ll have to give this recipe a go!
Gorgeous! I’m ready to break out my juicer now!
I’ve never used a juicer but it looks fun!
Thanks for the recipe. Just a little note, you should never juice the seeds from an apple.
What’s the serving size?
Love my Jack Lalane juicer! Wouldn’t mind seeing more recipes like this on Picky-Palate. Thanks for posting!
wow, this looks amazing. new to your blog, but i love it. you have some great recipes, and it’s nice to see a super healthy one. 🙂
Jenny, your recipe looks so delicious and refreshing. Seeing the green juice gave me pause but seeing your ingredient list makes me wish I had a juicer too! What a great way to start your day, crammed with nutrition. I love the addition of ginger too, to brighten it. I think some mango would be nice too! Thanks so much for sharing (as always, great, great pics!)
I drink one of these everyday! You are so right, juicing makes you feel so good. I just finished a 7 day juice cleanse, and Jack Lalaine was by my side the whole time 😉
how fun!!! I don’t have a juicer, but I remember that my little guy loved green juice when he was little.
fabulous! I am sharing this on my Facebook fan page today and on twitter & Pinterest
We love juicing as well – we make a big batch and drink it over the next 2-3 days. And if you start with this in the morning, then you don’t feel as bad eating some of your other delicious Pick Palate-created treats!
I have a Jack Lalane too, works like a charm!
Man, I’m finally getting a good blender, but now it looks like I need a juicer, too! (Although my new kitchen is so tiny that I wouldn’t have anywhere to put it!)
My favorite part of green smoothies is watching my 4 year old and 2 year old get so excited for them – who’d have thought they’d love spinach and kale so much???
I would love to start juicing …. I just can’t get myself to invest again in another appliance … sure looks good though!
I really need to get myself a juicer..are they a pain to clean?
I am obsessed with green smoothies right now. Will try your recipe next!
we make smoothies with those ingredients, plus more, on almost a daily basis. We throw it all (peel and all) into our Blendtec. Clean up takes about 20 seconds and you get ALL of the nutrition. We love it!!
SLUUURRRRRP slurp slurp.
I’ve always been curious about juicing…this looks like a great recipe to start out with!!
I love juice! I bought my husband a juicer a couple of years ago and it has been amazing! We haven’t gotten it out in a couple of months, so this is a great reminder to get it back out! It looks amazing and green! I love it! 😀
i wanna try this too
Love this post, Jenny, and that you juice. I don’t use my juicer very much anymore..the cleanup takes forever! (after I wash all the produce and clean it, and then actually juice it…then I have to clean up all those parts and pulp).
So Ive been slacking on juicing for about….2-3 years now 🙂 Your pics make me wanna start again!
I put a plastic grocery bag inside of my pulp recepticle, fold it over the sides and get to work. When I’m done juicing, I lift the sides and pitch. One less thing to clean 🙂
This may not be a blog du “norm” for you but that green nectar is a serious craving at our house. One of our favorite buys is the Odwalla Superfood juice, whose jolly green giant hue is thanks to a hefty dose of Spirulina. But adding ginger takes it to a whole new tasty level. Thanks for going Jack Lalanne on us.
