I have been making my favorite green juice today. It is a fairly simple recipe and very light on the ‘green’ taste. Plus it is economical because you get a lot of juice out of the vegetables.
One of the downsides of juicing carrots is you need a lot of carrots to make a little juice. Using ingredients like celery and cucumber it is definitely the other way around – plenty of juice with less veg.
So if you are on a budget using vegetables that produce a lot of juice is the way to go.
My favorite green juice includes:
1 whole cucumber
1 whole pack celery
Spinach or kale to top up the jar
Half a lemon
I tend to juice the cucumber, celery, half a lemon and apples. This fills up around three quarters of a liter jar. Then I juice my kale or spinach until the jar is full.
