Hi friends, today I’m sharing the Best Easy Green Juice recipe! This green juice is packed with all the goods: spinach, celery, cucumber, green apples, lemon, ginger, and parsley. Although it sounds mean and green, it’s a very easy-to-sip detox drink.
All-in-all, this juice is a very simple way to get yo greens! Especially if you’re someone who doesn’t like to eat them. And if you do, well here’s an extra boost!
So, let me tell you exactly how to make this green juice recipe so that you can get sipping pronto!
As you can see, this recipe uses minimal ingredients for a delicious green detox juice that you can sip and savour. I love that this green juice recipe actually tastes good! It’s lightly sweet, tart and refreshing. So not only do you feel good sipping, but you’ll enjoy it too.
For this recipe you will need:
- green apples
- piece of fresh ginger
- 1 scoop of Organifi Green Juice blend (optional, but recommended!)
No doubt, this juice recipe is teeming with greens.
To go above and beyond, you can also add Organifi’s Coconut and Ashwagandha Green Juice power like I have. It’s packed with healthy superfoods like organic wheat-grass, spirulina, chlorella and matcha.
The blend is really tasty on its own with a bit of water, and doesn’t require the hassle of chopping and blending. But it’s extra tasty added to green juice and smoothies like this green juice recipe. The nutrition from ashwagandha, chlorella, and spirulina certainly helps to supercharge your morning juice.

Juicing vs. Blending
Now, when it comes to juicing – it’s a bit of a controversial topic. Some are pro-juicing for a highly nutrient concentrated, and easily digestible drink. While others are con-juicing as it takes away the healthy fibres that are important for digestion. This article from Healthline does a great job at tackling the pros and cons of the juicing. vs. blending debate.
If you ask me, I’m pro both! (Juicing AND blending). Juicing is a great way for me to get in extra nutrients and greens. Although I love to eat healthy, it’s not so easy for me to eat six celery sticks and one cucumber in one sitting. However, when I juice it, it’s an easy sip-able drink that I love.
For me, I look at the contents with which I want to make my juice or smoothie. If it’s a blend that I would enjoy sipping; fibre and all (ex. kale smoothies with banana or berries), I’ll opt-in the for blending into a smoothie. But if it’s something where I think I won’t particularly love the texture (ex. kale and green apple, celery and parsley), I’ll opt-in for juicing.
Another important factor to consider is sugars! Because sugars can really add up when you’re juicing. And is often the reason why juicing can have a bad wrap. I always like to keep my drinks (be it juice or smoothies) around the 80/20 per cent ratio (veg to fruit).
All-in-all sugars add up! In fact, according to Dr. Perlmutter, a single 12 ounce glass of O.J. contains an incredible 9 teaspoons of sugar, about the same as a 12 ounce can of Coke!
So, take it easy on the fruits and try packing your drinks with loads of veg instead of fruits. And you can always pack in a little more greens with a scoop of Organifi’s green juice blend.
Easy Green Juice Recipe: Notes and Tips
Now, juicing is actually quite easy to do! Especially when using a juicing machine. It’s quick, easy and surprisingly simple to clean. Now, I’m not so big on single-purpose gadgets (I’m always trying to save room in my kitchen cupboards for things that have multiple use).
So if you are looking to invest, I recommend buying a multi-purpose machine that includes a juicer. I’ve got a 3-in-1 food processor, blender and juicer, and I love it. Here is the one I use on Amazon (affiliate link).
Alternatively, you can make this recipe using your blender and pass it through a fine mesh sieve to catch all the pulp. (Or, if you’re feeling adventurous, you can try drinking the pulp as you would in a smoothie!).
Another tip that I recommend when juicing is to buy organic produce. I know it can be a bit more pricey, but we are reducing any of the risks associated with pesticides. The mayo clinic does a good job of explaining organic foods and its benefits. If that’s not available to you, then I’d recommend to wash your ingredients (skins and all) as best you can.
Finally, for ingredients with thick peels (like citrus fruits), I recommend to peel in advance. I’ve never had much luck passing these through the juicer. Certainly it’s much easier on the machine to peel ahead of time. Unless you have a very high quality juicer, which apparently can juice skins without trouble. However, I can’t really speak to those machines since I’ve never owned one.
