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.
The ingredients are all really easy to find. Thank you for sharing!! Green smoothie is the best!
Thank you for posting this! I’m going to try this out tomorrow. I too love the Toxin Flush juice from Nekter Juice Bar, but wanted to do my juicing more economically. 🙂
I just made this recipe and it’s definitely better than the one at Nekter! I used 4 granny smith apples and 2 Arkansas black apples and juiced the lemon along with the other items, I also used 1 cup of mixed greens along with the spinach. I got 48 oz, 6 cups of juice, but I used the Omega 8004 juicer, which really squeezes the juice out.
Thank you again for posting this recipe!
Yum, I love fuji apples, great addition to my green juices.
I do not have a juicer, but would love to try this…do you think there’s any way to do it with a blender? The apples would be the only issue i would think.
I haven’t tried it with the blender, but it wouldn’t hurt to play around with the same ingredients.
Sorry Brian. I’m a botanist… apple seeds have tiny amounts of arsnic. It’s so small that you would have to eat handfuls of seeds to have any issues… and, as the solids are removed, you’re probably not getting much of what is in there in the first place. If there were any concern at all, my OB (13 weeks pregnant) would have said something – she only encouraged my use of the juicer!
By the way, I got the Breville Juice Fountain Plus and it’s easy to clean and works well. Also has great reviews.
Thanks for the recipe by the recipe. I only just got into juicing and am still collecting recipes for it!
I LOVE this. If you like to get your fruits and veggies but hate the hasel of having to juice all everything like that, I fell in love with a product from ItWorks Global that gives you all that you need in one all natural powder. Try Greens from ItWorks Global! (https://jerileigh.myitworks.com/Shop/Product/303) Not only do they taste great, they are versatile and can be added to just about ANYTHING – smoothies, juice, yogurt, applesauce, water, etc. One serving of greens provides 8+ servings of fruits and veggies. I loved them so much when I first started taking them that I started telling all my friends and am now distributing them! They are AMAZING and even give you energy! Check them out!
My wife and I recently started juicing, and we’ll have to try this one!
I noticed in one of your pictures that you were tossing a whole apple quarter in. I don’t know if you’ve heard this, but apple seeds contain a small amount of cyanide. Most adults are able to absorb and digest this without complications, but it might be potentially harmful to your little ones. You might make sure and cut the seeds out before you toss it in.
