Green Juice

Green Juice has been part of our diet for over one year. I know green juice is very trendy now, but it is not the reason why we love it. For myself, it just helps me SO MUCH to stop craving unhealthy snacks all the time. We usually have one glass of 250ml in the morning 20 or 30 minutes before breakfast and in the afternoon as well. My husband makes it for us in the morning and then he puts the rest away in mason jars in the fridge. I just love to have it on hand every time I am hungry.

Since we started to eat healthier, we always talk about eating ONLY what we really like and enjoy. I don’t believe that any eating habit changes will really work if you eat something just because it is healthy. For me, you have to enjoy eating healthy food as well. For this reason, the first time we made it and before we tried, we said to each other “if it tastes like green grass we will not juice any more”. Gladly, we had a great surprise. Green Juice tastes as good as any other vegetable and fruit juice. Many people who want to start juicing have a hard time convincing themselves to try it because they think green juice doesn’t taste good, but the flavors are delicious.

This is a healthy drink that the ingredients can be replaced if there is one of the ingredients you do not like. You can substitute kale for different green leaves such as chard, spinach and collard greens. If you don’t have apples you can use pears or even oranges. It’s all up to you. The best part of this juice is that it’s very tasty but not as sweet as the fruit juices. If you are trying to reduce the amount of sugar in your diet but you are not willing to give up juices, just give it a try. I am sure you will enjoy it a lot.

    It seems to be a very healthy and tasty juice.
    The apple adds a special flavour. I will try to put a slice of ginger. Can I use a regular blender or should be a juicer? Thank you. Congratulations! Your blog is awesome!

      Thanks, Paty. I am glad you like my blog ;-) Yes, you can blend the ingredients on the highest level setting. After blending it, you have to pour the mixture through a fine mesh sieve to extract the liquid. I hope you enjoy it. Thanks for stopping by ;-)

  1. […] 5. Primavera Green Juice This a green juice is made from and brought to you by Primavera Kitchen. Olivia has taken a pretty standard approach to green juice, combining ingredients found in many green juice recipes, such as cucumber and celery. There’s also green apples, which tend to have a tartness to them that other apple varieties lack. You’ll also be getting a mix of kale and romaine for added greenery. Romaine lags behind kale in the nutrition department, but still provides more nutrients than iceberg lettuce, specifically Vitamin A. […]
