Hey, I'm pretty new to making my own GREEN juices.
I'm wondering if you guys can post your favorite recipes for juice as well as smoothies too!
If you could post stuff that caters to a girl with a sweet tooth, a love of all things citrus, fruity, gingery, cinnamony... all the better.
My favorite green juice is
one large european cucumber
3 or 4 sticks of celery depending on size
half a lemon
spinach or kale
I do not have a fave smothie as it just changes all of the time. I suppose that I prefer a mango based one to a banana based.
There is sufficient in the world for man's need, but not for his greed.
thanks! I'll give this a try. :)
maybe a bit of cucumber
oh the first one sound really interesting. I'll try it later today :)
just curious what you're height is. We have similar stats
I put Ginger in every juice and smoothie I make
Kale/Cucumber/Green Apple/Ginger -- refreshing
Beet/Apple/Celery/Ginger -- cleansing
Baby Bok Choy/Pear/Ginger
hello, I am making my own GREEN juices. I suppose that I prefer a mango based one to a banana based.
Thanx!I'll try it later today
What's with Kassandra/Kate? Some type of SPAM?
Our favorite smoothie is spinach/kale plus apple, plus pineapple, plus frozen banana (plus a bit of water). very good
for green juice, my usual is spinach and/or kale, with carrot, cucumber, apple, and celery. sometimes I add sweet red pepper, too.

Probably juices all are good energetic for our body and it will give the coolingness to the bodies and stamina too here my favorite juice recipe..
1 lemon 1/2 cup parsley,
chopped 1 rib of celery
2 big handfuls of Spinach
1 pince of peeled ginger
1 medium cucumber
2 apples preferred amount of ice cubes (which is of course, optional)
This serves 1-2 people.
Variation of Ingredients
Juice of 1/2 lemon
2 cups spinach
2 cups cucumber
1 head of celery
1 bunch parsley
1/2 inch or teaspoon ginger root
Juice of 1 lime
Servings: 3 - 4
This is another variation of the green drink, I suggest trying out both and messing around with the amounts of the ingredients, according to your taste.
In a juicer, put all the ingredients except the ice cubes in a juicer until done. Serve in your favorite martini glass, or whatever you want! Add the optional ice cubes at this point now that it's finished.
Ofcourse, you can adjust these ingredients to your own taste. Maybe you really like the cucumber taste. Excellent! Add a few more cucumbers instead.
When you start making green juice, I recommend a few more apples than usual until you get used to the taste. There is no absolute requirement to start out with something that tastes like mud. Start with something with a fruit/sweet taste. After that, if you want you can add a few more vegetables and less of those fruit. That's the reason why green smoothies are popular - they are most of the time 60% or more of fruit, and 40% or less of vegetables.
The dark green color is a great indication that you have more than enough greens in the juice. As long as it's green, you will know that you're getting the excellent alkaline benefits of greens.
