Apple & Kale Green Juice

Apple + Kale Green Juice @ thesassylife

Lately I’ve been really intrigued by healthy green juices and juice cleanses. No, I’ve never done a juice cleanse and don’t plan to ever to go on a crazy juice only diet (I’d go psycho), but there are some great health benefits to adding a green juice to your diet!

I’ve been lightweight obsessed with Suja Organic Juices at Whole Foods ever since I had a sample and I usually buy a new juice to try whenever I visit the store. But it’s a lot more convenient to make juice at home instead of making a run to the store to buy $8 juice. One of my favorite juices I tried was “Green Supreme” which had green apples, kale, and a little lemon. It gave me a lot of energy and I felt full for a while after drinking it!

Since I enjoyed it so much, I’ve made my own Suja-inspired juice using apple, kale and lemon!

Apple + Kale Green Juice Recipe 

Makes 2 servings (4 cups)

Apple + Kale Green Smoothie @ thesassylife

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of water
  • 1 green apple
  • 1/2 a bunch of kale
  • 1/2 lemon

Directions:

  1. Chop up the apple into small pieces. They don’t have to be too small, but small enough for the food processor.
  2. Pluck leaves from the kale stems to add to your smoothie. Feel free to add some stems if you’d like but break them up into 2-3 inch pieces so it’s easier on your food processor.
  3. Start blending the apple in the food processor first. Once the pieces are relatively chopped up, add the kale and process further.
  4. Once you have gotten a chunky pulp material, add the juice of half a lemon. Then add 1 cup of water and blend.
  5. You should start to see a more juice-like consistency especially now that the water is helping to process the juice. When it’s well blended, add the other cup of water and blend.

That’s it! This makes 2 2-cup servings of green juice!
