Green Booster Juice


Usually when we juice it's just a mis-matched random assortment of fruits and vegetables, often chosen based on how soft, squishy, wilted or shriveled looking something it is! And no matter what we juice it always seems to come out a sludgey brown colour. Often tasty, but rarely visually appealing. So it was about time I created something with a little more intention!

Since I'm following the 21 Day Sugar Detox program I can only have very limited amounts of fruit, and since Chris is away I can also have a lot more celery than usual (he hates the stuff, but it's so awesome for juicing with great juice content!) Really I just pulled out anything green from the fridge and set to work - I love the zing of the fresh ginger and everything tastes better with some mint, no?!

This turned out perfectly and the fresh ginger and mint give it a real boost!

Ingredients (makes approx 2 cups)

  • 1 green apple
  • 2 stalks celery
  • 1/2 lemon
  • handful fresh mint
  • 1 inch piece of ginger
  • 1/2 package of power greens or spinach
  • 1 cucumber
  • Stalks from 1 bunch Kale
This made about 500ml of juice for me which I split into 3 portions and topped to a 1 cup serving with a little cold water.

  1. I love this! I always make my green smoothies without celery because I have an intense hatred for it! Could you taste the celery?

    1. I really couldn't taste the celery in this one - but then I don't mind it - the test will be my hubby when he's back! I think the ginger and the lemon do a pretty good job of masking the others flavours so it's surprisingly 'sweet' tasting without much fruit in it - certainly no vegetable taste here!

    1. Thanks Lauren. This one's a good one! I made it again today subbing the mint for parsley and it was another good variation!
