It’s no secret that I love juicing.

veggies for juicing

And my go-to green juice recipe usually involves the following ingredients: romaine lettuce, kale, celery, cucumber, apple, and lime/lemon.

I think this concoction is super delicious (not to mention nutrient-rich and ah-mazing for your body), but understand that the flavor can be a little intense for new juicers. I’ve had friends give me some real talk and tell me my green juice recipe tastes like grass or dirt. I was trying to think back to the first time I had green juice, and how I felt about it. I probably didn’t think it was super tasty, but it’s hard to remember now because I have come to love it so much.

    Hello! I know it’s been 6+ months since you posted these juice recipes, but I wanted to say thnaks! :-) I’m a newbie juicer and it can be pretty intimidating seeing tons of all vegetable juices out there, These look like great recipes to baby-step into juicing & I’m excited to try them

    You are so welcome, Kathy! I was a newbie once too. Happy Juicing!

  5. Sarah says:

    I have been wanting to start juicing and I have a question about how using a juicer like what you have compares to using a high powered blender like a Blendtec? I have a Blendtec and wondering if it’s worth the money to also have a juicer? Thanks for your help!

    Hi Sarah! You can make juice with your Blendtec by blending and then running the mixture through a sieve or cheesecloth. A juicer will extract the juice more efficiently, but you may want to try the blender first and see how you like it.
