Green Juice in a Blender Without a Juicer
Prep time
Total time
This quick and easy recipe for healthy green juice is made in a blender instead of a juicer. You can strain the juice for a thinner consistency.
Serves: 4
  • 1½ cups water
  • 2 cups kale or baby spinach
  • 2 medium green apples, cored
  • ½ cup parsley leaves
  • 1 medium cucumber, quartered
  • 2 celery stalks, roughly chopped
  • 1 (1-inch) piece of ginger, peeled
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Equipment needed: blender; fine mesh sieve (optional)
  1. Add all of the ingredients into the blender in the order in which they are listed.
  2. Blend the ingredients on the highest level setting, such as "liquefy," until the juice is well-blended. (It will be the consistency of a smoothie.)
  3. If you want to enjoy the pulp with your juice, pour the mixture into glasses and serve.
  4. If you prefer a thinner consistency, pour the mixture through a fine mesh sieve, and using a spatula, press the pulp into the sieve to extract as much liquid as possible. Pour the strained juice into glasses and serve.
NOTE: I prefer my juice to be pulp-free, so to take it one step further, I like to strain the mixture through cheesecloth and wring out as much liquid as possible. Opt for whatever consistency you prefer, but of course there are additional hearty nutrients in the pulp.
