Green Juice Recipe

I’ve never been into diets, but at the start of this year, I was definitely feeling like I needed to get back to eating healthier after a long holiday season. We’ve had a juicer (on sale here & also here) sitting on our counter since my bridal shower almost 6 years ago and had yet to use it, so I decided this would be the year we get into juicing. We started out with one green juice recipe and have been making a couple of different ones each week and I love it so far!

Juicing requires lots of fruits and veggies, but I think it’s worth it, as I really do love the taste of them. I don’t love spinach, but it’s great in juices, and I like that other flavors mask this nutrient-rich veggie. I started out using a lot of kale, but it’s more expensive and I found it doesn’t actually make as much juice as spinach, so lately I’ve been scaling that back.

Today I’m sharing one of my go-to juices, made with apples, oranges, parsley and spinach. I think this one is so refreshing. The recipe below makes a little more than 32 ounces for me usually, depending on how big the apples and oranges are. I make that much so my husband and I can have 2 days’ worth, but you can easily scale it back.

Have other juice recipe recommendations? Leave them in the comments below – I’m always looking for new recipes to try out!
