Energizing-Purifying Juice

Yield: 1 1⁄2 cups, 1 serving

This juice detoxifies the body while providing needed nutrients and energy. It is a health promoting daily breakfast and an energizing mid-afternoon snack. To save time, wash and cut the vegetables the night before. For a spicier juice, add the optional ginger and radish. Thank you to Keyvan Golestaneh for this recipe.


  • 2 celery stalks
  • 1 carrot
  • 1⁄2 cup chopped green or red cabbage
  • 1⁄4 cucumber
  • 1/4 beet, cut into chunks
  • 4 kale or collard leaves
  • 15 parsley sprigs
  • 1⁄4 cup coarsely chopped broccoli stalk (a 4-inch piece)
  • 1/4 Granny Smith apple, optional
  • 1 small red radish, or 1 (1-inch) piece daikon radish (optional)
  • 1 (1⁄4-inch) piece fresh ginger (optional)
  • 1 1⁄2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice (1⁄4 lemon; optional)


  • cutting board
  • chef’s knife, 8-inch
  • juicer
  • citrus juicer or reamer

Juice the celery, carrot, cabbage, cucumber, kale, parsley, broccoli stalk, and the optional radish and ginger. Stir in the lemon juice, if desired. Alternatively, peel the lemon and put it through the juicer with the vegetables. Serve immediately.

Hello -  I’m new to this…wanted to try your Energizing-Purifying juice cocktail.  I have never used a juicer.  I have a very old blender from the 60’s & a hand juicer mainly for squeezing citrus items.  Can you recommend a juicer?  Also, when you use a juicer, does it take the threads out of the celery or pulp stuff or does the entire vege remain in the final juice?  Finally, the directions don’t include the beet you list in the ingredients; do you put that in with the other veges & is that what makes the pretty red color of the cocktail.  Thanks.  Mary

Hi Mary,

Yes, put the beets through with everything else. With a good juicer, there won’t be any pulp or strings. I recommend the Tribest juicers, either the Green Star or the Solo star models, or the Breville Juicer. See my “raw gear” page.
