Green Juice

This juice is a nutritional powerhouse, providing vitamins, calcium, and trace minerals. It is also low in calories and sugars, making it an ideal weight-loss drink. When I’m in need of a detox, I’ll make this juice in the morning and have one serving for breakfast, and 1 for lunch, followed by a light dinner.

Yield: 3 cups, 2 large servings

Ingredients

  • 1 head celery
  • 1/2 head kale
  • 1 cucumber, sliced lengthwise
  • 1 lemon, peeled

Equipment

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

Juice the celery, kale, cucumber, and lemon. Stored in glass jars, Green Juice will keep for 24 hours in the refrigerator.

Variations:

1. Add 1/4 bunch parsley, cilantro, or mint
2. Add 2 apples or 1 cup fresh pineapple
3. Add a 1-inch piece fresh ginger root

Hi Sandy,

A head of celery is a “bunch” of celery. The whole thing.

Would you know the calories per serving? Thanks.

I just tried this kale salad, and it is fantastic! Since I didn’t have the exact pirtoons, I wasn’t sure how much lemon juice to add, so I added a bit much I believe, but it made the kale not only edible but very tasty also.

Jenny,
I’ve been using Raw Food Made Easy… for about 5 years and love the recipes, especially the juice and hummus. For the Energizing-Purifying juice, in the book you mention adding equal parts water for a fast. When is the best time to add water vs. pure juice? Is it personal preference or has to do w/how it metabolizes while fasting?
thanks!

Hi Cheryl,

You can just drink the juice straight if you want, that’s what I usually do (and then drink a glass of water in between each juice). But if you want to get less calories per juice and do a deeper fast, you can dilute the juice with water (doesn’t taste quite as good, though).
