Making the Switch: Green Juice Recipes for Beginners

yummy green juice recipes for beginners

You’ve heard all the rave reviews about going green: the radiant skin, the boost in energy, the overall vitality that comes with consuming heaps of micronutrients…and you’re finally ready to jump aboard. But, there’s no denying it – green juices can be a bit intimidating, especially if you’re just starting out.

Truth is, most of us aren’t accustomed to eating straight-up real and fresh veggies. Most of us have spent the majority of our lives eating veggies that are smothered in other flavors: Our salads are bombarded by sauces and the usual vegetable side dishes are sauteed, fricasseed, fried, and usually covered in butter and salt. As a result, many of us haven’t really tasted raw, fresh vegetables. At least not on a regular basis.

But much like anything else, you’ll get used to the taste of the raw freshness of vegetables. We’d even go so far as to venture that you’ll get addicted.

But ’til you get there, here are some non-intimidatingly delicious green juice recipes for beginners to get you started on your quest for better health!

Go Green

watercress juice recipe

Just like its name, GO GREEN is a juice that will inspire you to go green. This green juice is delicious – slightly sweet and refreshingly hydrating with slight peppery notes from watercress. But don’t take its yumminess to mean it lacks in nutrition – this scrumptious juice packs a powerful nutrient punch of antioxidants, chlorophyll, and a range of minerals and vitamins.

Kale Whale

Kale whale is the perfect green juice recipe for beginners. It’s chock full of chlorophyll – one of the main benefits of green juices – without any of the bitterness that usually comes with green juices. Apples and carrots sweeten this juice so that the end result is a refreshing, fresh, and pleasantly sweet superdrink!

Fresh as a Daisy

natural bad breath remedy

FRESH AS A DAISY is a deliciously simple combination of alfalfa sprouts (tons of nutrients!) and parsley – which are both excellent sources of chlorophyll while still having a mild taste that’s agreeable to people starting out in green juicing. The cucumbers act as a great hydrating and diluting base.
