What is green juice?
Green juice is made from various green vegetables along with a little bit of fruit to sweeten it up. You can also add ginger, turmeric, parsley, or mint for added health benefits. Some of us are considered dedicated juicers and prefer blending our own however you can purchase bottled green juice at your market. Make sure you check ingredients though as some can contain lots of sugar. A teaspoon of sugar will show up as 6 grams in the ingredient list. Some beverages contain up to 36 grams of sugar, that’s a whomping 6 teaspoons of sugar so always read ingredients. Green juice is best consumed as a refreshing and hydrating beverage. It’s not meant to be used a meal replacement as it doesn’t contain fiber, healthy fats, or protein.
How many calories are in this green juice recipe?

What do I need to make green juice?
There are different ways you can go about making green juice. If you don’t have a juicer, you can blend the veggies and fruit in your blender and strain it through a nut bag. This is easy and then you don’t have to worry about storing another appliance. I use my vitamix, the powerhouse of all blenders. Here’s the model I use, not the most expensive one but works perfectly and it’s all I need. If you want to see how I strain my juice, head over to this blog post.
I had a huge juicer for a least a decade and I finally tossed it. It was replaced with a Breville. It’s much a smaller juicer and easier to store and clean.
Kale, spinach, celery, apple, ginger root, lemon, and cucumber are some of my favorite juicing ingredients.

Pressed juices contain no fat, fiber, or protein. I recommend using them as a supplement to your meal or post workout snack rather than a meal replacement.
